Hanna Schaich. Bregenz, 1986

Hanna Schaich is a Queer Performance and Multimedia-artist living and working in Berlin. Post Grad. Adv. (2017) Performance and interactive Media Arts, Brooklyn College, Nyc; MFA (2015), Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee. She is known for her work in video, installations, and performance art. Her work is based on an uncompromising, touching openness.

At the center of her work is the confrontation with her innermost self and the attempt to build bridges from there to the outside world, to enter into a dialogue with others. She investigates current issues and fights for the acceptance of the “otherness”. Her videos reflect working along the lines between documentation and fiction, commentary and staging. Hanna’s writings and voice-overs are triggered by an autobiographical impulse to ask questions about our individual strategies to encounter life. She has shown in galleries and other institutions nationally and internationally, most recently at: excentricofest (Chile), Porn Film Festival Berlin 2020; Porn Film Festival Wien 2020; Vienna Poetry Film Festival; LLC Kunstraum (NYC), Zentrale (Vienna, AT), FokiaNou Art Space (Athens, GR), Galerie Hollenstein (Lustenau, AT), RAM galleri (Oslo, NO), Kunstraum Bethanien (Berlin, DE), and microscope gallery (NYC). She has received awards and grants, such as DIS-TANZ Solo (2021), #takecare, Fonds Darstellende Künste, Berlin (2021), START STIPENDIUM Media Arts Fellow (2019), 5×5 GO (2019), DAAD Fellow (2016). Some works belong to the collection of the Vorarlberg Museum and private collections.
