Kristin Weissenberger (1982, Voitsberg, AT) is an artist, material-researcher and
lecturer based in Vienna, Austria. In her artistic practice she uses different media and formats to explore the relationship between human and non-human agency.
In ongoing cross-disciplinary investigations that combine art, science, alchemy, craft and technology, she explores questions of how we interact with the sphere of matter and organisms that surrounds us, how this relationship shapes our understanding of being in the world, and how we can create new forms of encounter in the destroyed environment of the Anthropocene.
Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally, and she also frequently works on these artistic issues in collaborative projects.
Kristin Weissenberger studied at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and teaches now as a Senior Lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, where she is also heads the workshop for Molding and Casting Techniques.
