JANA STERBAK
"I´VE DECIDED TO BE HAPPY, BECAUSE IT´S GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH."
CURATED BY MICHEL BLANCSUBÉ

The work of Jana Sterbak, usually described in many publications as a Canadian artist with Czech roots, is often depicted as ambiguous.
The question of identity is one of the themes Sterbak delves into – often in a provocative manner. There are the known roots, and those
that Sterbak cleverly exhumes and rends us in disguise. M. B.

Meine Herkunft habe ich mir selbst ausgedacht
[My Origins? I Made Them Up]


The exhibition takes place in the context of the gallery festival curated by_vienna:
Meine Herkunft habe ich mir selbst ausgedacht [My Origins? I Made Them Up].


The theoretical starting point for the participating galleries and curators is provided through
the eponymous essay by cultural theorist and author Diedrich Diederichsen. With the project
curated by_vienna, the Vienna Business Agency and its creative center departure have been supporting
cooperation between Viennese galleries for contemporary art and international curators since 2009.
