One of the most significant female artists working in the field of visual poetry, Schödl often incorporates Old German in her work, in reference to the artist's Austrian heritage and ancestral past. Hand-painted on found materials, here old maps, the work references conquest and the legacy of the Austrian empire.
Schödl lives and works in Bologna, Italy. She graduated from the Academy of Arts in Vienna, Austria in 1953 before moving to Italy in the late 1950s. After ceasing her practice temporarily to raise a family, Schödl returned to making work in the mid-1960s and has since exhibited widely in institutions around the world. Her work was included in “Materializzazioni del Linguaggio”, the show curated by Mirella Bentivoglio as part of the 38th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in 1978 and is held in numerous collections, including MART | Museo D’Arte Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Rome, and The Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry, Miami Beach, Florida.
