Maria Guggenbichler thinks and un-thinks, laughs, dances, plays, doubts, tricks, listens, talks, walks, organizes, works and sabotages, publishes, hides, and spoils the broth with too many cooks, partners-in-crime and friends. Projects take place in ongoing and long-term collaborations and friendships. And situate themselves in informal, often domestic and self-organized contexts. Together with her friend Amal Alhaag, Maria initiated and ran the Side Room, a platform for ex-centric cultural practices and thinking (2013-2016). They have been collaborating on many other events, programs, pranks and dances. Maria lives and works between Amsterdam and the mountains.
