Charlotta Öberg

Bio

Charlotta Öberg (she/her), *1987 is an artist and performer currently based in Vienna, Austria. She is a co-organiser of Hotellhänget, a queer/lesbian club that gathers every fifth week in Stockholm. She trained as a pattern maker and seamstress, and received her qualification as a milliner in Sweden. 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.
