Margarete Kiss
Multi-media artist
Presenting a growing archive of virtual encounters mimicking fortune telling programs, Margarete Kiss offers a reflection on the boundaries between fiction, truth and beliefs. The artist explores our intimate relationship with esoteric sciences and religion.

:::sotrue, Margarete Kiss, 2017-ongoing

Margarete Kiss has been working under the alias P. Feigenbaum since 2017,  exploring intimacy and interaction together with questions of truth, fiction, and reality. The online performance-in-process :::sotrue was created using fortune-telling programs, studying their rituals for their performative character.

:::sotrue took place through online streaming and radio, through which visitors and listeners could interact with the artist at certain times. By using fictitious systems inspired by science, esotericism, and religion to answer questions, Kiss made critical references to the mechanisms used to determine truth and gaining knowledge, as well as attempting to make hierarchical superstructures visible.

:::sotrue is a growing archive of virtual encounters, reflecting intimacy and interaction in digital spaces.
