Publication Launch & Performance

  • Thu 29 Jun 2023

In conjunction with the exhibition Disagreements as Domains of Nausea and Elation, the Austrian Cultural Forum presents a performance by Joshua Woolford on Thursday 29th of June as well as the launch of an accompanying publication designed by Marta Úrbez, featuring exhibition essays and a documentation of the exhibition.



Joshua Woolford is a transdisciplinary artist working between performance, painting, sculpture, sound and installation. Born and raised in the South of England with mixed Waitukubuli* British heritage with African roots, Woolford has been actively seeking community and understanding of the world(s) around them from a young age.

‘Calling out and addressing experiences of violence, aggression and misalignment is central to my work; often starting from cultural research, recounting literature or a personal experience (being of the queer Black Afro-Caribbean diaspora and living in Europe). States of reflection, transition and action are instrumental in disrupting existing narratives and enable me to process my sociopolitical context through and within my practice’

Woolford graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven (Media and Culture), and more recently with an MA from the Royal College of Art (Contemporary Art Practice). Woolford work and live performances have been exhibited at: the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, HOME by Ronan Mckenzie, Soho House, Somerset House, Black Cultural Archives, The V&A, Copeland Park and Tate Britain.

*Waitukubuli is commonly known as Dominica and was labeled so by Spanish colonisers

This event is part of the Disagreements as Domains of Nausea and Elation show, a group exhibition featuring the work of twelve early-career artists who work across installation, painting, sculpture, sound and new media, curated by Nimco Kulmiye Hussein.
