Ursula Mayer
But we loved her

Ursula Mayer Cover

The London-based artist collected all the newspaper articles in the days that followed Thatcher’s death, programmatically positioning these four words at the forefront of her exhibition in Vienna, and in a phase of her work that foregrounds questions about the opportunities offers by neoliberal identity, about consumer culture in a post-capitalistic society, and about their precursors.

About the product

Ursula Mayer studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and Goldsmiths College in London. She won the Otto Mauer Prize in 2007, and was a scholar in the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York in 2011. Her films have been presented at international film festivals such as Locarno, Oberhausen and Rotterdam.

The title BUT WE LOVED HER was taken from a picture in the April 17, 2013 issue of the British daily paper The Independent, the day Margaret Thatcher was interred. The London-based artist collected all the newspaper articles in the days that followed Thatcher’s death, programmatically positioning these four words at the forefront of her exhibition in Vienna, and in a phase of her work that foregrounds questions about the opportunities offers by neoliberal identity, about consumer culture in a post-capitalistic society, and about their precursors.
