Dorit Margreiter's works negotiate urbanistic and socio-political issues in complex image and video arrangements. At the center of her artistic production is the question of the conditions of visibility of social structures and the economic efficiency of images, language and space. O.T. (Case Study #22) refers to Margreiter's installation of the same name, which she set up at Kunstverein München in the context of the exhibition Icestorm. Starting point and subject of the work is Julius Shulman's famous photograph of Pierre Koenig's Case-Study house over the hills of Los Angeles, which he took in 1960 for the magazine 'Harper's Bazaar'. Using this icon of post-war modernist architecture as an example, Dorit Margreiter examines the interactions between the economy of the image and that of real architecture.
Dorit Margreiter (born 1967 in Vienna) lives and works in Vienna and Los Angeles.
