Eva Choung-Fux (*1935 in Vienna) has been a central figure of Vienna’s art scene since the 1960s. Her entirely committed and profoundly uncomfortable oeuvre stands out by virtue of a subtle intensity and mastery of graphic print techniques, but also by virtue of the artist’s close personal affinity with Asian culture.

Eva Choung-Fux became the first lecturer in fine art photography in Vienna at what was then the Academy of Applied Arts where, together with her students, she found new approaches to themes that were of relevance to society. And throughout her life, resisting and rebelling against social evils and grievances came naturally to an artist who always articulated her world view in her art.
Other constants in Eva Choung-Fux’s artistic output include poetry, contemporary music, and literature. Through the scriptural abstraction of vast textual stratifications she has consistently asserted an ethical aspiration that is closely linked with her own personal journey through life and, in a quiet yet forceful way, encouraged us all to reflect and take action.

In 2012 Eva Choung-Fux handed over a large part of her main body of work to MUSA, the collection of contemporary art of the Department for Cultural Affairs of the City of Vienna.
