Jury Statement
Alexander Fleischmann’s transdisciplinary practice promises a collaboration with unexpected topics and questions. His approach could be research based and explorative with an open outcome. Furthermore his experience and publication list is very impressive.

Alexander Fleischmann
works as a researcher at the Institute for Gender and Diversity in Organizations, WU Vienna University of Economics and Business. His current PhD-Project is on alternative forms of organizing and diversity / anti-discrimination. His previous appointment was at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, where he was responsible for the ‘Network for the Advancement of Women | Office for Equal Opportunities and Gender Studies’. He graduated both in Business Studies (2005) and Gender Studies with a minor in Art History (2015) at the University of Vienna. His last work was on Jacques Lacan’s concept of the subject in relation to the work of Félix González-Torres, concluding that the Aufgabe (both duty and surrender in English) of the subject is less the reiteration of the existing symbolic order, but rather the exposure of the impossibility of any ‘translation’ of sexual difference from the Real into the Symbolic.
