Cordula Daus is a writer and artist who works across performance, literary fiction and theory. Her work is concerned with concepts of place, subjectivity, body and language. Often departing from site-specific investigations and self-experiments, Cordula explores the mechanisms of how to de/construct worlds in language. Her semifictional research environments often unfold over several years and in collaboration with other artists and scientists. Cordula has presented her work in the form of artist books, texts and lectures in venues such as the Research Pavilion #3 in Venice, at Wiener Festwochen, Centre d’Art Santa Mónica, Conceptual Poetics Day/Akademie der Künste Berlin, among others. Since 2018 she has been teaching at Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel, at Literaturinstitut Hildesheim and has given workshops internationally. Cordula holds a PhD in Artistic Research from University of Applied Arts Vienna. She studied Cultural Studies, Art History and Theater Studies at Humboldt-University Berlin and Digital Arts at University Pompeu Fabra Barcelona and was a researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie. Together with Emma Cocker, Lena Séraphin and Alexander Damianisch she is the co-founder of the Society of Artistic Research Special Interest Group on Language-based Artistic Research.
