About

Hi Tina,

What’s your favourite drink?
Cola Zero.

Are you trying to be provocative?
No. I am trying to invite!

Is the male body all fantasy?
It’s about desire — making the male body other, or into an object.

Is there hope for Austria?
There is always hope. But the question is, not only in Austria, but worldwide — will there be a radical motion away from surreal capitalism.

Is there a relationship between sex and art?
Desire. Attraction. Rhythm. Focus and irritation.

If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?
1968 and the moments when I first was discovering things, when I was a child and in my youth.

Whose histories do you redeem in your work?
Youth culture and the liberation of women, queer people and the working class. Also, fetishism.

Who would play you in the film of your life?
Philip Seymour Hoffman, if he would still be with us.

Describe your art practice in 3 nouns.
Enthusiasm. Curiosity. Challenge.
