Christina Jauernik


Christina Jauernik is an architect, artistic researcher, and performance artist based in Vienna. She studied contemporary dance at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Amsterdam, choreography and visual arts practices at Dartington College of Arts (UK), art and architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the University of Arts Berlin. She is Senior Scientist at the Institute for Art and Architecture, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, where she completed her PhD, "Touching Distance: Inter-Views with the Virtual," supervised by Vicki Kirby and Wolfgang Tschapeller. The dissertation is an experimental inquiry on how to perceive, how to think the moving body relative to its (un)built surroundings, and how to accommodate this body considering the contemporary accelerated, networked, multiple, and disparate virtually engineered points of view. Currently, she collaborates on the artistic research project "Unstable Bodies," which centers around questions of cohabitation with other species, in particular vegetal modes of perceiving, ecologies of attention, and translation capacities.
