b. 1954 in Vienna, Austria; lives and works in Vienna, Austria, and Berlin, Germany

Kandl’s work is deeply involved with Serbia, where she studied in the 1980s. The pieces comment on the causes and consequences of capitalist transformation. Looking at the layers of society that are left behind in the social race for progress, she presents a highly critical, almost photographic view of power relations hidden behind the banal everyday language of marketing and advertising.
