Johanna Householder has been working at the intersection of popular and unpopular culture in performance, dance, video and intermedia art since the late 1970s. Shaping plundered source material in order to talk back to mass forms, Householder practices her own brand of cultural detournement, often in collaboration with other artists. She recently performed at Performancear o Morir in Chihuahua, at undisclosed territory in Java, and at M:ST in Calgary, AB. She is one of the founders of the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art and with Tanya Mars she edited Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women (YYZ Books, 2005) – and they are currently at work on Volume Two.
