BIO
Evelin Stermitz is working on media and new media art projects by using different media like photography, video and net, including installations and conceptual works.
The focus of art work is on gender based female and socio-cultural topics. The issues of projects are about gender, role models and the gap between man and woman referring to the theory of Jacques Lacan in terms of "the Other" and the performativity of the body by Judith Butler. An important task is the female body and the outgoing connection to created symbolic meanings of gender in history and nowadays. A main emphasis is on performative works.
In media theory the main interest is on the representation and approach of the female body in everyday media and media art encouraged by Barbara Kruger's work "Your body is a battleground."
Completed the study of Media Communication at the University Klagenfurt, Austria, with a master's degree in Philosophy on the thesis "Imagoes of Dancing Women in Film" in the year 1999.
Received a scholarship for the postgraduate study of Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, (Prof. Milan Pajk - photography, Prof. Srečo Dragan - video and new media) in the year 2004 and graduated with a Master of Arts degree on the thesis "The Female Body in Context of Media Art" in the year 2007.

Dear Artists!

We would like to invite women artists working in the fields of
cyberfeminism and new media to an open exhibition starting on March 8,
2007, the International Women's Day, in the rooms of the Austrian
Association of Women Artists, Vienna. The founding of this first artists
association in Austria in 1910 was a reaction to the general exclusion
of women artists from the artworld and resulted from the first women's
movements and its international networking. We see feminisms today for
the most part as being depoliticized. Therefore, past forward focuses on
the question: how are depoliticizing aspects emerging today in light of
global politics?

We are opening a public space for an exhibition, real meetings,
presentations, panels, discussions, performances, concerts,
happenings ...
past forward will become a great gathering of cyberfeminists and new media artists.

past forward, cyber fems virtual real: Participation in the exhibition
cyber fems virtual real is free by submitting your project websites (net
art projects, websites including video, animations, interactivity,
poetry, activism, personal websites, virtual women spaces ...). Online works
will be presented both as real paper hangings and as online room
installation projections as cyber fems virtual real.

past forward, cyber fems real saturday meetings: You are also invited to
propose a presentation, panel, discussion, performance, concert,
happening or djane acting for the cyber fems real saturday meetings
taking place throughout March, 2007.

Submission for cyber fems real saturday meetings: Choose a date and time
for your real appearance and send us your proposal. We will try to
accommodate your preferences, if there is a scheduling conflict we will
