Emma Wolf Haugh is a visual artist and educator based in Dublin and Berlin. Working across disciplines she weaves together installation, performance, publishing and collaborative workshop techniques. Haugh is interested in re-orienting attention in relation to cultural narratives and develops her work from a working class-queer-feminist questioning of what is missing? A continued engagement with club culture and dyke aesthetics informs the collective making of temporary, autonomous spaces. A background in working with Augusto Boals’ Theatre of the Oppressed has inflected her work with the particular quality of overlapping critique and proposition making towards shared spaces of potential and alterity.

Since 2015 Haugh is part of the artist/curatorial collective The Many Headed Hydra together with the curator Suza Husse.

Emma Wolf Haugh has worked with: The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (2017); The Universität der Künste Berlin (2017); IADT Dún Laoghaire (2017); NCAD, Dublin (2015); Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin (2018); Akademie der Künste der Welt, Cologne (2018) and Gasworks, London (2017). Selected projects include: Colomboscope Interdisciplinary Arts Festival, Sri Lanka (2019); Sex in Public, nGbK, Berlin (2018); Miraculous Thirst how to get off in days of deprivation, Galway Arts Centre (2018); Poverty of Vision, ROSC 50 Artist Research Commission, IMMA (2017) and Having A KiKi, Queer Desire & Public Space, editor, published by PVA (2016).

Residency Profile

IMMA 1000 Residency
July 2019 – January 2020

Emma Wolf Haugh is a recipient the IMMA 1000 Residency Award.
Speaking about the award, Haugh commented: ‘Six months as resident artist in IMMA offers a very welcome period of non-outcome oriented, process based, studio practice. The supported time and space will allow for the development of ideas that have had to take a back seat to the demands of project oriented frameworks and travel. I very much look forward to working for an extended period in Dublin and in relation with IMMA’s residency programme.’
