Johanna Tinzl’s practice encompasses a broad spectrum of medias and is based on a sensitive and participatory examination of the history of specific people, communities, places and landscapes.

She explores questions of collective memory and politically motivated processes of representation. Tinzl is particularly interested in the performativity of historical narratives and the visualization of global and local dimensions of ecological and technological processes.

In her at times fictional as well as documentary formats, the artist always emphasizes the polyphony of narratives and thus questions the hegemonic constructions of history(ies).
