¬ Franziska Pierwoss
Franziska Pierwoss lives and works in Berlin as an artist in the fields of performance and installation. In her work, she stages site-specific installations and prompts unexpected encounters in which radical forms of dialogue occur between actors with different standpoints and backgrounds. Focussing on durational performance and collaborative practices, Franziska Pierwoss develops situations of engagement, in which the personal and political boundaries of participants, as well as institutions, are called into question.
She studied at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig and at the Lebanese University Beirut. Her work has recently been shown at Paco Imperial, Rio de Janeiro, Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai and Halle 14, Leipzig (all 2022). Pierwoss has been staging dinner performances at MUAC, Mexico City (2017), Sharjah Biennial 13, Beirut (2017), and the Fast Forward Festival, Athens (2019). Franziska also trained as a transformation manager and has been developing tools to support ecologically sustainable working methods in arts & culture.
