Eva Weinmayr’s collaborative practice is grounded in contemporary art, radical education and critical infrastructures.
In 2020 she published her doctoral thesis on a MediaWiki. Noun to Verb is concerned with the micropolitics of publishing from an intersectional, feminist perspective (HDK-Valand SE).
As interims chair of faculty (Art & Education) at Munich Art Academy (2022–23) she initiated with students the open source pool kritilab for discrimination-critical teaching in the arts. From 2019–22 she co-led the EU-funded collective research and study programme Teaching to Transgress Toolbox, inspired by US activist, teacher and theorist bell hooks (with erg, Brussels).
As part of Ecologies of Dissemination (HDK-Valand, 2023–24) she is currently Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Postdigital Cultures, Coventry where she develops – with artist Femke Snelting – feminist and decolonial approaches to Open Access.
At the Critical Media Lab at IXDM, Eva Weinmayr collaborates with Lucie Kolb on the research project Sharing Knowledge in the Arts. They build on their previous research on decolonial, feminist approaches to cataloguing and the potential biases of naming and framing knowledges in institutional library catalogues in the Global North.
