Sophie Dvořák

Vienna, Austria

Dvořák uses map imagery from newspapers and magazines as a starting point and from these she creates a conceptual analysis of how picture and language convey information from the media.  She operates between revealing and hiding political power structures, their technical means for representation, and the opposing appropriations of didactic models.  Dvořák currently resides in Vienna, she studied at the Glasgow School of Art and the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, Austria, where she graduated in 2008.  She has exhibited internationally and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards throughout Europe.
