Contributor

Alexandra Bischoff (b. Edmonton, Treaty 6 territory) is a performance artist and writer. Bischoff’s practice responds to obscured intimacies, often focusing through the amorphous lens of womxn’s work. Sexual, emotional, and caretaking labours—legitimized or not, compensated or not—are some of Bischoff’s main concerns. She holds a BFA in Visual Art from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and is currently an MFA candidate at Concordia University in the department of Intermedia.
