March is a journal of art & strategy.

Georgia Holz

Georgia Holz is an art historian and works as an independent curator, author, and editor. She is a senior scientist at the Department of Site-Specific Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and formerly held curatorial positions at the Generali Foundation in Vienna and Kunsthalle Wien. She is on the board of the Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Vienna (WUK). Her interests focus on artistic and curatorial gestures that question and deconstruct hegemonic narratives by means of “parafictional” and speculative strategies. She is engaged in critical artistic practice with archives and leads “Anonymity and Absence: Archival Sites of Speculation,” an interdisciplinary research project at the University of Applied Arts.

Storying the Silence: The Archive of the Vereinigung bildender Künstler*innen Österreichs (VBKÖ)

Georgia Holz and Stephanie Misa discuss the Austrian Association of Wom*n Artists (VBKÖ)’s controversial history and how its archive has become a site for speculative methods that explore convergent and divergent – and at times haunting – histories within the association.
