In the context of Austrian contemporary art Jakob Lena Knebl represents an artistic perspective that interweaves design and art history and makes the impact these factors have on the construction of identities visible.
With her performative and provocatively theatrical stagings she intervenes in existing collections to propose an artistically and politically motivated reassessment. Over the last few years she has concentrated on works in public space, which have been on display in a great number of international exhibitions such as, most recently, at the Biennale Lyon in 2019.
