was born in the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic and lives currently in Switzerland. She holds degrees in fine arts, critical theory and transdisciplinarity in the arts. She works as a research associate at the Zurich University of Arts. As an artist and writer her projects operate at the interfaces between art, research, science and literature. Vanecek often chooses her topics on the basis of personal experience, but the focus is not on her "individual person". She sees herself rather as a "contact area" or "bioport" in which the prevailing discourses and practices are brought together. Inspired by Gloria Anzaldúa's poetic auto-theory and Annie Ernaux's auto-ethnographic literature, the writing "Self" is decentralized in her texts in order to reveal the cultural, political, economic and social entanglements that shape this "Self" - but also the social realities of many other lives. Vanecek illuminates her topics from different disciplinary perspectives and uses a combination of diverse voices as a structuring principle.
