Eva Weinmayr Wiki:About
Eva Weinmayr is an artist, educator, researcher and writer based in London and Gothenburg. She investigates in her work the border crossings between contemporary art, radical education and institutional analysis by experimenting with modes of queer knowledge formation. In 2009 she co-founded AND Publishing, a feminist publishing platform and collaborative practice based in London and Gothenburg. AND explores the politics and infrastructures of publishing and dissemination by asking Why publish, how and for whom?
Current and recent projects include Boxing and Unboxing (with Rosalie Schweiker), boxing training for self-defining women and trans in collaboration with Marabouparken Konsthall. The Piracy Project (with Andrea Francke) is an exploration of the philosophical, legal and practical implications of book piracy. It questions common sense assumptions about ownership, authorship and the implications policy development has had on the current debate around intellectual property. The Library of Omissions and Inclusions is a community run library with feminist, intersectional and queer material, that develops new validation and classification systems. Let’s Mobilize: What is Feminist Pedagogy? (Valand Academy working group) is an ongoing collective experimentation with queer and feminist pedagogies. Downing Street - Help! David Cameron Likes My Art (New Documents Los Angeles) is a play co-written with John Moseley & Titus Kroder in 2014, in order to allow Eva to have a conversation with the then Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha who selected Eva’s art for their private residence in Downing Street at the time - a conversation which had in real life been denied.
She has worked with institutions such as SALT (Istanbul), Zacheta National Art Gallery (Warsaw), Marabouparken Konsthall (Stockholm), Kunstverein München (Munich), MayDay Rooms (London), Matt’s Gallery (London) and The Showroom (London) among many others. In her publishing projects she collaborated with international publishing houses as well as small independent presses such as New Documents (Los Angeles), Book Works (London), Occasional Papers (London), Temporary Services (Chicago,) Hatje Cantz (Ostfildern), Open Editions (London) and Printroom (Rotterdam). Currently she is conducting a practice-based PhD on the micro-politics of publishing at Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg.
