Veronika Weidauer (b. 1965) studied fine arts at the Ecole Municipale des Beaux-Arts, Avignon, France. Weidauer worked briefly in advertising design, later on choosing to study archeology and library science. Currently she’s a freelance artist based in Berlin working with multiple mediums such as abstract and figurative paintings, textile objects, photography and artworks made out of everyday materials. Her ongoing project titled #POSTCARDGEMS in collaboration with Vienna based artist Kathrin Delhougne includes a series of images posted on Instagram staging vintage postcards in contemporary context. The content of the postcards often include representative motifs from the past century (mainly 1950-1980) which are often kitschy, naive or absurd being emphasized by newly designed compositions and backgrounds.
