Lilly Urbat is a german interdisciplinary artist, working in the fields of photography, graphic design and media art. Her works cluster around popculture and feminism and mostly emerge from performative processes. Solely her sharp humour legitimates the big scale and loudness of her works.
She is co-founder of VJ studio Prizesin Haralt and plays a/v performances during club nights and festivals. Furthermore she is co-host of the podcast called 404.earth, a podcast driven by artistic research, that negotiates the social and cultural implications of technological progress.
From 2014 -19 she initiated and co-curated off space Edel Extra – Club for boosting aesthetic processes in Nuremberg. There originated and happened more than 100 exhibitions, events and performances during this time. This effort was honoured with the Bavarian Young Artists Award, special prize: artists as curators because of the installative and performative formats and the unique and humorous merge of art and curatorial work.
Since 2019 Lilly Urbat also is a member of the photographers collective femalephotographers.org and has worked for many happy years together with the artist Claudia Holzinger under the name Holzingerurbat.
Characteristically for her works is a dramatic overtone and a deep, humorous undertone. That goes beyond the depicted subject into the chosen medium.
