Claudia Antonius & Jörg Jozwiak

Based in Vienna, Claudia Antonius and Jörg Jozwiak have been working together for many years. In 2015 they founded the "Institute of Inter-witted Research". Their artistic studies are dedicated to the interface between sense, nonsense, pensiveness, deeper meaning and senselessness.  For Claudia and Jörg works are not limited to specific forms of artistic expression and they toy with various disciplines; they are especially interested in the serious within the humorous, and the humor to be found within the serious.

Claudia is a visual artist and an art historian with degrees from the Düsseldorf Art Academy and Salzburg University; Jörg also graduated from the Düsseldorf Academy and holds a Visual Arts PhD from Goldsmiths College, London.

For b-side 2021

b-side welcomes back Claudia and Jörg for their brand new project especially for Portland - Tyrolia Mundus. Working with their usual humour and tongue in cheek approach to serious questions around land, rights and power, they propose two new developments on Portland: Haus Kitzbühel and Haus Wörgl – large Tyrolian-style houses with luxury apartments forming a gated community.

"We will embody two representatives of the fictitious Austrian real estate company Tyrolia Mundus that erects and markets such properties. Our mission on Portland is a) to promote the project and present it as a benefit to the local public b) investigate options for site-specific features such as the creation of private beaches, a chairlift "
