Anna Viola Hallbergs work - as an artist and curator - interacts with specific communities, while addressing social or political contingencies and by this taking on a critical stance towards public space/sphere.
Hallbergs artistic practice is informed by the notion of in-betweeness, as personal experience and geopolitical position. Her methodology in the immersive space-narrations of video, sound, photography and text brings forward a discussion on the documentary of experience, remembrance, and emotions rendering collective memory/affect and the work for social justice.
The curatorial work spans from video-based exhibitions to initiatives in public space. Additionally she extensively engage (seminars, workshops, presentations, boards) with strategic and curatorial development of publicly funded art primarily in the field of participatory, engaged, and critical practices.
