In her talk “BEHIND regina & embodiment” Regina (Maria) Möller will give an introduction to her working practices and share some insight views.

Regina (Maria) Möller is a German artist, writer, founder of the magazine regina and the label embodiment. Her working method is conceptual and involves a wide range of media formats.

1994 she founded the magazine regina – which achieved international acknowledgement. regina is an adaptation of the format of mainstream women’s fashion, life style magazines and their notion of women’s everyday life. Her magazine includes the familiar sections of fashion, work, home & garden, recipes, partnership, but the real content of regina is evident how this everyday is dealt with differently, often through the production of discourse.

In the same year Möller launched the (art) label embodiment. Under this label she produces clothing – limited editions of furniture, wallpaper, carpets, accessories and clothes imbuing their materials with new, unusual meanings. The embodiment works can be worn or used as functional design objects. embodiment is to be understood as a link between art and design, the relation between the body and environment at large – the second skin. Strong conceptual influences and references to embodiment are the tradition of Bauhaus and Russian Constructivism.

The projects and works of Regina (Maria) Möller have been widely exhibited both nationally and internationally in solo and group shows in venues including Manifesta 1 / NL, 45th Venice Biennial / IT, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art / DK, Tate Liverpool / GB, Moderna Museet / SE, Wiener Secession / AT, 3rd Berlin Biennial / DE, Sprengel Museum Hannover / DE, Tate St. Ives / GB, Kunstverein München / DE, Tensta konsthall / SE, Museum of Modern Art (MuMoK), Vienna / AT, and many more. 2012 she co-curated ZERO 1 San Jose Biennial, Silicon Valley / USA.

Aside from her art works and projects she contributes continuously with talks, lectures and workshops worldwide. She has been lecturing as professor and guest professor at international universities and academies, for example Kungliga Konshögksolan (KKH), Stockholm / Sweden; The Visual Art Program (VAP), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge / USA, the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (KiT / NTNU), Trondheim / Norway and recently she has been research fellow with NTU Centre for Contemporary Art and visiting professor / scholar at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University Singapore (ADM / NTU).
