Anna Mutschlechner-Dean was born 1999 in Austria. She lives and works in Vienna and focuses on performative and digital methods with an interdisciplinary approach, exploring cultural cognitive phenomena, questions of human identity and individual perception of reality in conjunction with digital conditioning that modifies the relationship between human and nature.

Central themes revolve around the relationship between humans, their environment, and nature. Engaging with the human connection to external contexts, her work aims to foster an extended dialogue on individual and collective, socio-politically influenced behavioural and perceptual patterns.
