Lara Verena Bellenghi studied Fine Art at Oxford University and completed her MA in Art History at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. She is currently based in Vienna, pursuing her artistic practice and working for the education
departments of the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Belvedere. As part of her work in museums and as practicing artist alike, Lara explores notions of
communication as both a necessary and an arduous thing. Language-based anxieties and the inevitability of misunderstandings provide the base for her interpretation of cross-national and -generational clashes. In line with her interest in performance and in collective experience, Lara’s research often
departs from sites and objects that are informed by socio-historical phenomena. Merging dialogue and performance on an almost daily basis, Lara aims to translate fragments retrieved from her engagement with
vast audiences into nuanced platforms for further exchange.
