MA Phil, multidisciplinary artist | co-founder of ART IN PROCESS

works independently across performance art/video/installation/creative writing and research

Elisabeth was born in Linz, Austria in 1974 and lives in Fremantle/Western Australia (since 2001) and in Langenlois/Austria. She received her Master of Arts (Philosophy, Theatre and Art History) from the University of Vienna in 1999, followed by various employments at Austrian Cultural Institutions (OK Center for Contemporary Art Upper Austria, States Theatre Linz, and Wochenklausur/Interventions through Art). Elisabeth is a co-founder of ART IN PROCESS with artist Bello Benischauer and they have worked together as an independent entity since 2000. They create work that is experimental, that involves interactions with participants and functions within non-traditional spaces. Elisabeth’s part in the partnership involves artistic creation, voice works, performance acts, interventions and writing short abstract plays, as well as independent research on theoretical questions concerning ART IN PROCESS practice and context. Workshops, lectures, social/school projects and conference presentations accompany their artistic work. Some of their earlier works were released on DVDs, Blu-Ray and in book format, distributed by Contemporary Arts Media Melbourne/London. Elisabeth and Bello have two children, Elias, born 2004 and Emma, born 2011. Next to her artistic work Elisabeth is writing an artistic monograph about ART IN PROCESS.
