The practice of 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 seamlessly 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) and "Each Poison, A Pillow" (Éditions Images Vevey, 2023). She received numerous awards and prizes, among others the C/O Berlin Talent Award, Outstanding Artist Award from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Arts and Culture, Images Vevey Broncolor Prize, Wallpaper New Generation Prize. Her work has been published in various print & online publications, such as i-D, art - Das Kunstmagazin, Zeit Magazin, M Le magazine du Monde, Wallpaper Magazine, Monopol, Harper‘s Bazaar, Numéro, DAZED & many more. She has been exhibited throughout galleries, museums and fairs around Europe, the US, China and Korea, among others at: Museum of Applied Arts Vienna, C/O Berlin, Foam Photography Museum Amsterdam, Belvedere21 Vienna, Kunst Haus Vienna, Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art South Korea, Webber Gallery London, Fotografiska New York.
