Sophie Dvořák, born in 1978 in Vienna, studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Art and the Glasgow School of Arts. (Diploma in 2008). Her artistic workpractice revolves around questioning visual representation concepts of mass media, Cartography and Information Graphics. Exploring different views of events or things, perspectives and projections, and trying to outbid the span between assumed knowledge, and lack of it in the viewer.
As starting point and pool for her drawings and collages are media images such as press photography, and the most diverse kinds of representation of information and/or knowledge.
