Christine & Irene Hohenbüchler

"The thesis of this article is that the Hohenbüchler sisters’ artistic procedures are distinguished by the fact that they define their authorship as multiple. This is not only because both sisters contribute to many of their works or because they often work with non-artistic people, whose artistic work is integrated into their own, but also because, on the textual level, they bring together literary, philosophical, historical and scientific texts as well. But they also do that on the image level, as the last work discussed here demonstrates. Their preoccupation with the world puts everyday life experience, art, nature and philosophy on one level, thus making it renegotiable. By ignoring the “appropriate code”, Christine and Irene Hohenbüchler are in a position to open up completely new worlds of thought and imagery with their work."
