Stefanie Knobel | Studio Residency

India | Visual Arts

17 January - 3 March 2019 — Visual Arts

Stefanie Knobel is an artist and choreographer. Knobels work has been internationally presented at 24/7 – Friday Mi l k (RU) , FRAC Lorraine Metz (FR) , 6. International Moscow Biennale for Young Arts (RU) , Aargauer Kunsthaus (CH) Künstlerhaus Bremen (DE) , Helmhaus Zurich (CH) , etc. Her work bases on bodily and linguistic practices, that alongside geopolitical dynamics, scrutinizes means of production, and the “public sphere”. Her choreographic approach is dedicated to realize life and non-life situated in the different narratives of “human” processes such as technology, labor and pharmaceutics. Propelled by a critical remetaphorization of these “human” processes, Knobels work embodies a material formalism such as her performative breathing practice – hereish&nowish (2017), A manifestation for the quasi-public (2018-). Through precise gestural layouts and an intense physicality, Knobel is aiming to materialize zones of conflicts as possibilities of the hitherto unthinkable.

Since 2015, Stefanie Knobel is lecturing a performance module at Zurich University of the Arts.
