The practice of visual artist Stefanie Moshammer (*1988) is characterized by its boundlessness: Her subjects move seamlessly through different media - photography, moving images, text, installations, textile-sculptural elements, and book publishing. Her work primarily draws inspiration from personal experiences and social phenomena. By navigating between fictional narratives and research-driven approaches, she intertwines elements from the past and present, often with a profound connection to the private sphere.
After graduating in Textile Design at the Fashion School Vienna, Moshammer received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design & Photography at University of Art and Design in Linz and she attended the BA in Advanced Visual Storytelling at the Danish School of Media and Journalism. She also did a one-year study of Social and Cultural Anthropology.
Stefanie Moshammer is the author of “Vegas and She” (Fotohof edition, 2014), “Land of Black Milk” (Skinnerboox, 2017), “Not just your face honey” (Spector Books & C/O Berlin, 2018), "Each Poison, A Pillow" (Éditions Images Vevey, 2023), "Vienna. A Fountain playing in the Sun." (Louis Vuitton Fashion Eye, 2023). She received numerous awards and prizes and her work has been featured in various print and online publications internationally. She has been exhibited throughout galleries and museums around Europe, the US, and Asia, among others at: Fotografiska New York, Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art South Korea, Foam Photography Museum Amsterdam, Kunst Haus Vienna, Belvedere21 Vienna, C/O Berlin, Webber Gallery London, MAK - Museum of Applied Arts Vienna.
