Mo Diener’s artistic practise is placed in the transdisciplinary conceptual field of critical art and theory. Her body of work appears as medial and performative interventions, spacial installations, video projects and actitivist performances. Mo’s interest focuses on blind spots in contemporary societies. With her transdisciplinary artistic practise she elaborates her body of work as parts of a “history in the present”. Her work is based on long years of research in civil, forensic and historical archives – and on encounters with members of the bigest transnational minority living in Europe – the Roma – and with the Yenish people in Switzerland. Mo was initiating 2013 the Roma Jam Session art Kollektiv (RJSaK) on the occasion of Olga Stefan’s event “guess who’s coming to dinner”. Mo Diener is the artistic director of the collective.
