Barbara Philipp is a visual artist, working in the Netherlands and in Austria.
The human body in transition in our times and its abstractions are key to her work, she explores the relationship of different formal and contextual languages.
The artistic translation is located between words, images and the imagination that point to an allegedly perfect world.
She studied in Vienna, Paris and Frankfurt and finished the master program of the Dutch Art Institute (DAI).
Mbassy Unlimited introduces emerging visual artists whose work engenders multiple disciplines and areas of knowledge, while inventing or adapting new production methods.
It is from these artists’ viewpoint as inquisitive minds, who dare to negotiate their position regardless of the art canon and the art market steered by commercial interests, that we can experience and gain understanding of changes in today’s society.
These local events hosted by different organisations, are art experiences for small groups, that provide expertise and tools for looking at contemporary art in a friendly and informal atmosphere.
