For her solo exhibition at Affiliate, Michaela Schweighofer has created a new sculptural series.

Michaela Schweighofer is an artist from Austria, based in Brussels and Vienna. She works with sculpture, often incorporating installation, text and lectures into her artistic practice. Interested in questions around society, politics and feminism, Schweighofer engages with materials and techniques to investigate those issues. In 2020, Forum Stadtpark published her book FROM THE PROP TO THE INSIDE, a theoretical-subjective anthology in which she interrogates her own practice by writing and gathering texts on the concept of the sculpture as prop and the stage as installation.


She studied English, Psychology and Philosophy at the Karl-Franzens-University in Graz and the Université VII in Paris, as well as Video and Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and the University of Fine Arts (HFBK) in Hamburg. She has exhibited work and realised projects at Komplot and FLⒶT$, Brussels (BE), Neue Galerie, Graz (AT), Kunstverein Eisenstadt (AT), Pogo Bar, KW Institute of Art, Berlin (DE), foundation, Vienna (AT), Skulpturinstitut, Vienna (AT), brut, Vienna (AT), Forum Stadtpark, Graz (AT) Gipsmuseum, Graz (AT), Galerie der HFBK, Hamburg (DE) and MUMOK, Vienna (AT).

Forced Perspective is supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport and the Austrian Cultural Forum Brussels.
