Josepha Edbauer (*1995) is a multimedia artist; currently living and working in Vienna, Austria.

Materials carry the previous within them, and through their detachment from their socio-cultural context, are brought into new ones to express.
In my practice, contraindications are addressed and narrated through transdisciplinary room installations. The starting point are deconstructions of personal circumstances in different systems in which I am surrounded.
Coming from an art historical background, questioning the mechanisms and structures of the art world is thus a recurring subject, as is visualizing digital phenomena in our analogue society. The digital space and it´s structures are no less real than our analogue world. Each object carries its own meaning, which results from the interplay. I translate my analyses into materials that suggest new perspectives in their altered context. 

Josepha Edbauer is a founding member of the interdisciplinary artist led collective room69, which develops progressive exhibition formats, new media art and installations.
