HANNA

SCHAICH

VITA

Hanna Schaich  (AT) (b.1986) lives and works in Berlin and NYC.

She is known for her work in video, photography, 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. 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 Zentrale (Vienna, AT), FokiaNou Art Space (Athens, GR), Galerie Hollenstein (LustenauAT), Kunstraum Bethanien (Berlin, GER), and microscope gallery (NYC).
