Lila-Zoé Krauß is a multimedia and performance artist. Her works confront subjects related to violence, capitalism and emancipation. Moments in which perception is disturbed play a central role. Following the principle of deconstruction, Krauß interweaves biographical material with extensive research on voice, body memory, psyche, and gender. With the aim of countering normative notions of madness, desire, freedom, and fiction Krauß constructs new narratives, that are reflected in multimedia installations involving video, spatial audio and performance.
Krauß’ multimedia works have been shown at Galerie Oel-Früh, Literatur Fest Nantesbuch, Goldsmiths London, Brecht Festival, NAVEL Los Angeles, Vienna Arts and Poetry Film Festival and Your Touch Makes The Waves in Berlin. Krauß has produced and performed sonic works at various theaters, venues and festivals, such as Staatstheater Augsburg, Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, Lichthoftheater Hamburg, Documenta Fifteen, Montez-Press-Radio New York, HKW Berlin, Golden Pudel Club, Import Export Munich, Kvaka22 Art Space Belgrad and many more.
Krauß has received grants from DAAD, HFBK Freundeskreis, GEMA, Musikfonds (German Federal Minister of Culture and Media) and Fonds für Darstellende Künste. Krauß is co-founder of the transdisciplinary artist* collective ZOLLO, with whom she realized a series of media projects under the motto No Public Space, No Institution, No Service. Since 2020, her radio show Rhythm Imprints can be heard monthly on Cashmere Radio Berlin.
