MARLIES PÖSCHL (b. 1982) is an artist, filmmaker, curator and educator. She is currently based in Vienna (AT) and works internationally. Pöschl teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. As co-founder and chairperson of The Golden Pixel Cooperative, an association for moving images, she has developed artistic-curatorial strategies for exhibitions, screenings and projects in public space with a focus on feminism and ecology.
Shifting between artistic, curatorial and educational approaches, Pöschl is interested in art as a form of knowledge production. She understands filmmaking as social practice and often collaborates with actors from outside the art world in search for polyphonic narrations and open-ended dramaturgies. Recently, Pöschl has focused on ways in which western societies respond to the ‘care crisis’.
Pöschl has received various prizes for her work: in 2022 she was awarded with the State Scholarship for media art and in 2021 with a scholarship by the Academy Schloss Solitude. Her films and installations have been shown in several solo presentations, most recently at Kunstverein Ludwigshafen, DE (2022), Salzburger Kunstverein, AT (2021), CAC Brétigny, (2018) and MUSA, Vienna, AT (2016). She has participated in biennales and film festivals such as the Vienna Biennale for Change (AT), Antimatter media art festival (CA), Edinburgh International Film Festival (GB), Cinema Verité (IR), Diagonale (AT) and others.
