An Malv (GER): “In the elaboration of my body as material, I am political.” In An Malv’s experimentation with pain, suffering and sarcasm as material, she is searching new images of artistic aesthetics and politics. In doing so, she works with the constructed categorical gaze of the society and tries to break and appropriate it. An important part of this for her is empowerment
While attending her study in “Cultural Studies and Aesthetic Practice” at the University of Hildesheim An Malv could be found performing at different seminars, workshops and projects of Helge Meyer, Jürgen Fritz and other artists, as well as at festivals and projects in Hildesheim and international.
An Malv`s performance art works „I am A Virus“ and „Attention and recognition“ were created in 2020 in the context of the online performance project „quARTantine“ of Performance Kokkenet and the performance art exchange project “Crossing” by PAERrsche Aktions-Labor e,V. and Artsvit Gallery. Both address the racial impact of the Corona pandemic and the conditions for BPoCs.
