Zoe DeWitt is a Vienna based multimedia artist and philosopher with roots in Industrial music and Viennese Actionism. During the 1980s her musical solo project Zero Kama has gained international cult reputation within the ritual industrial / dark ambient genre. In the field of performance art she had been working as a model in the major actions of Hermann Nitsch's Orgies Mysteries Theatre, recently being followed by a collaboration with Marina Abramović.
In her multi-layered artistic work, comprising the fields of music,
performance and visual arts, Zoe DeWitt explores
borderline areas of existence such as death, sexuality and the unconscious,
which are negotiated against the background of a radical exposition of the body
that seeks to transgress customary (gender) codes and significations. At certain opportunities
she gives lecture
performances to communicate her philosopy, which is about the creation of
reality by language and desire. In 2013 Zoe founded the Museum of Contemporary
Mind (MUCOM) and curated the exhibition The L. A. Show: Queer Art //
Contextual Painting which was shown at various public places in Los Angeles, CA.
