Born in 1976 + 1977 in Graz, Austria, Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond began working as an artist duo in 1999. In 2007 their book Notizen zu einer Küste (Notes on a Coast) was published. The book, a collaboration with Giora Rosen and Klaus Zeyringer, included an eponymous photo series and the first anthology of contemporary Hebrew lyric poetry ever translated into German. In January 2012 they began curating a nomadic screening and discussion series, HASENHERZ, inspired by Arnold Schönberg’s Society for Private Musical Performances. 2013-2014 they worked with writer and essayist Anna Kim on a year and a half long project that follows the construction of a new district in Vienna and reflects on the process of converting utopian ideals in urban design into reality. In 2014 Anderwald + Grond started their cross-disciplinary artistic-research project Dizziness–A Resource.
Dizziness–A Resource is a transnational, cross-disciplinary artistic-research project including screenings, discussions, workshops, publications, conferences and exhibitions. Furthermore, the project serves to widen and strenghten the network of artists, philosophers, scientists, and practitioners working in dizziness-releated fields.
