Brigitte Kovacs


Kovacs explores walking as an artistic practice and has been invited to Breaking the Fifth wall to tackle the urban and forested areas of Helsinki through her work as a cathartic alternative to the network society. Kovacs studied fine arts at the Royal Institute of Art Stockholm, the Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Applied Arts Vienna, where she also studied German philology. After her Graduation, she undertook curatorial training with the Generali Foundation (Vienna) and the Dia Art Foundation (New York City). In 2010, she was appointed assistant professor at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the Graz University of Technology, where she has been exploring and expanding contemporary artistic production through the application of theory, research and practice. In addition to her occupations as researcher, lecturer and curator, Brigitte Kovacs pursues an active artistic practice. Her site-specific, conceptual and often performance-based artworks aim to contribute to critical poetics in the visual arts.
