Biography

Hannah Heilmann, b. 1978, works in a field where classic and performance-based disciplines intersect, and where the concept of art and the artist’s role are constantly renegotiated. She works alone and in collaborations, and is particularly concerned with collective Subjectivity and the apocalypse. The works often take the form of mise-en-scènes where the usual hierarchy of props, costumes, social interaction and finished work is destabilized and disappears. Hannah is part of the Copenhagen-based exhibition space and production unit TOVES, and runs the radio GeneralBootyofWork.net. She currently teaches at the Basic Studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen. She holds an MA in art history from the University of Copenhagen.
