Hanna Burkart is an Austrian artist who completed her Master of Industrial Design and Master of Fine Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
In the context of her work in art, she has long been involved in the constructive forms of action and inaction, and the relationship between space and behaviour. In her performances, she takes a step back from accepted certainties and practices, exercises abstinence and concentration, and explores the spatial and social aspects of walking, sleeping and living.
Since April 2016, she has lived without a fixed abode, moving to the places she works. Through the method of spending days and nights on-site, it is possible to pay acute attention to site-related issues and thereby create a solid basis for analysis, concepts and interventions. Based on her applied research into itinerant living behaviour Burkart creates series of objects, installations and architectures supporting various cultural techniques of habitation and movement. All sites, settings and experiences are documented with drawings, in text or image.
