”The multitude of voices into which Regina Maria Moeller splits her artistic work corresponds to the various positions she adopts with regard to that which she confronts. Similar to the way in which overlapping circles form intersections that shift previously peripheral material into a (new) center, Moeller shifts attention and reshuffles the cards, so to speak: secondary characters become protagonists, coherencies become contents, opposites are robbed of their oppositions. Moeller uses the strategies inherent in her media, overwriting and adapting them for her own purposes, and shows that there are always a number of different versions underneath and alongside the official interpretation.” (Matthias Herrmann in: Regina Moeller: embodiment – dress plot, exhibition catalogue Secession, Vienna 2004) Regina Maria Moeller lives in Berlin. She studied art education, art history and history of middle ages at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich / Germany. She is the founding editor of the magazine regina and the creator of the label embodiment. Regina Moeller is visiting professor for the fall term 06 at MIT’s Visual Arts Program. Regina Maria Moeller situates her works in the border realm of art, fashion, and comics. She takes various formats of contemporary cultural communication and reflects on their identity-forming, economic, and functional connotations. For example, in her magazine regina, with which she has reached a broad readership since the late 1990s, she adapts the language of women’s magazines. Through subtle shifts she under-mines the common constructions of female identity. Parallel to this, Regina Moeller has designed clothing, carpets, furniture, and inner decor under her own label embodiment since 1993.
