Die Gastkünstler/innen erfahren in Österreich eine engagierte, professionelle persönliche Betreuung, bei der sowohl die künstlerischen Produktionsbedingungen als auch die Unterbringung und Vernetzung in die Szene einen hohen Standard aufweisen. KKA unterstützt im Bereich „Artists-in-Residence-Programm“ die internationalen Kunstschaffenden bei der Präsentation ihrer Arbeit in Österreich. Die Stipendiatinnen und Stipendiaten knüpfen wichtige Kontakte zu in Österreich ansässigen Galeristen/innen, Kurator/innen und Kunstschaffenden. Ein reger Austausch erfolgt mit Expertinnen und Experten von Museen, Literaturhäusern, Verlagen und Kunstuniversitäten. Durch die aktive Partizipation im kulturellen Leben Wiens und die Zusammenarbeit mit Institutionen und Organisationen wird von KKA aktiv die Vernetzung von österreichischen und internationalen Künstlerinnen und Künstlern und Kulturschaffenden vorangetrieben.

Bildende Kunst:

María Raquel Cochez│Panama Born 1978. She is an artist and lecturer from Panama. She holds a BA from Savannah College of Art and Design, Georgia, USA. http://mariaraquelcochez.com

„My work is an exploration of the human experience existing within all the norms established around food, concepts of beauty, self esteem, and our own personal, sometimes skewed and often limiting definitions of these. Through a variety of media I examine the actions and perceptions of myself and others reminiscent of my own behaviors and thoughts dictated by an eating disorder and body image dysmorphia. It investigates the psychology behind the forming of beauty ideals in childhood, the cultural differences in beauty canons and their subjectivity, the self harm involved in distorted conceptions of the body, the sexual dynamic surrounding bodies not currently celebrated in the media, and the impact that distorted relationships with food can have on all of these premises. I examine the act of binge eating, the physical settings in which it happens, and the secrecy behind it; the cycle of loosing and gaining weight and the physical consequences of this symptom of the condition. My work is an elaborate story of the battle of self acceptance executed through auto-referential, autobiographical and biographical accounts parallel to this universal struggle.“

Giorgia Conceição (aka Miss G)│Brasilien Born in 1981 in Curitiba, Brazil. She holds a MA in performing arts from the Federal University of Bahia, Salvador, Brazil and earned a postgraduate degree in Dramatic Literature and Theater from the Federal University of Technology – Paraná, Curitiba, Brazil. During her performance art studies, she developed the concept of “burla”, a Latin word extracted from the frame of the burlesque genre (the substantive burla generates the adjective burlesque). Burla presents itself as a strategy for the creation of the body which wants to heal from its scars, some of which are gender related, as well as those deriving from colonialism and stereotyping, giving visibility to powers and characteristics prevented from developing within the discourses of colonial and rationalist tradition. Her art is about blurring the limits between contemporary live art and burlesque performance. https://giorgiaconceicao.wordpress.com/
