Charlotta Öberg

Bio

Charlotta Öberg (she/her), *1987 is an artist and performer from Sweden based in Vienna, Austria. She is co-organiser of Hotellhänget, a queer/lesbian club that gathers every fifth week in Stockholm. She is currently completing her MA from the Akademie der bildenden Künste under Carola Dertnig in the Performance class. She trained as a pattern maker and seamstress at Stockholms Tillskäraradkademi, and received her qualification as a milliner at Göteborgs Tillskärarakdemi. Her background in political activism inflects on her practice, where she questions power structures and restrictions in society such as norms of behaviour, of being heterosexual, and of being successful and healthy. She explores what feelings these norms create and imagines different ways to handle obstacles and challenge societal restrictions. Her performative approach that includes interactive elements and collaborations stems from her commitment to care and community through the sharing of experiences between people.
