Associate Professor, Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts.
Monika Weiss is an internationally recognized artist who creates durational and site-specific public performances, as well as films, drawings, photographs, and objects. Originally trained as a classical musician, she continues to compose sound for her work. The artist frequently employs her own body as a vehicle of artistic expression and invites others to inhabit her works. Weiss' transdisciplinary approach investigates relationships between body and history, and evokes ancient rituals of lamentation. Her current work considers aspects of public memory and amnesia as reflected within the physical and political space of a City.
