Barbara Ungepflegt is a multi-disciplinary artist. Her work comprises interventions,
installations performance, video, and visaul works.In many of her works, she deals with interspaces and utopias in public.
Since November 2009 she is working at the University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna, where she created a new postgraduate programme for applied dramaturgy. This programme started in March 2018 at the University for Music and Performing arts Vienna.
In her artistic research as a PhD student (Kunstuniversität Linz), Barbara Ungepflegt also deals with transformations of escapist places into reality and imagination. The starting point is "Leo", the place of refuge for the game of catching. Leo is discussed transdisciplinarily, not only from the perspectives of escapism research, spatial production and cultural and media studies. Leo is also examined with regard to his various manifestations in Barbara Ungepflege's interventions, publications and performances.
