In her art practice, Ana Hoffner analyzes moments of crisis, war and conflict in recent history and politics. Her performances, videos and photo installations seek to introduce temporalities, relations, and spaces in between established perspectives, memories of iconic images, and highly performative events. Hoffner employs means of appropriation such as restaging photographs, interviews and reports, as well as strategies of desynchronization.
Ana Hoffner completed the PhD-in-Practice program at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2014. She has exhibited work at Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; Secession, Vienna; and VOX Contemporary Image Center, Montreal, among others.anahoffner.com
