Artist and filmmaker

Maria Lassnig

Maria Lassnig (1919-2914) created a substancial body of work in the fields of painting and graphics alongside her excursions into (animated) film and sculpture. The key notion which came to characterise Lassnig's work was above all the concept of Körpergefühl or body awareness: by introspectively discovering the true nature of her own condition, she expressed physical sensations through the use of artistic media. Numerous self-portraits offer evidence of the form of self-analysis to which the highly sensitive artist constantly subjected herself.
