Viktoria Schmid works at the crossroad of cinema and installation art. Her chosen mediums of film, video, sculpture, and photography act as co-authors and enter into a dialogue with the content. Medium-specific qualities shape her works, where she reflects on the spatial and social conditions of cinema, exhibition, and public spaces. Schmid is interested in perception and influencing viewers’ everyday ways of seeing. Her practice focuses on historical image-making-processes, the potential for representing landscape, and the historical development of cinema.
