Claudia Holzinger works intuitively and between disciplines to create expansive installations, in which photography always tells the main narrative.
Examining herself through the social mirror, she hopes to create something positive through a second reflection. She defines humor as an important means of creating access to a deeper, often painful truth in her work. Through radical self-reflection, she deals with body politics, collective memory, desired identity, fan culture, moral hygiene and the dangers of positive prejudices.
Born in the deep South of Bavaria, Claudia Holzinger studied Visual Communication and Photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg and at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, after having worked as an photography assistant in a studio for still lifes and product photography. In 2018, she won the Advancement Award of the State of Bavaria for her curatorial work and was nominated for the German Design Award.
