The Ritsch Sisters started as a collaborative project at the beginning of 2020 by sisters Anna and Maria Ritsch, who have worked in the field of audio-visual media independently over the past years. Anna studied Photography and Art History in Vienna, Maria graduated at the Academy of Beaux Arts in Vienna and followed the Online School for Visual Design in 2015. Together, their collaborative practice focusses on exploring the tensions between the physical, spatial, and emotional.
The duo collaborates internationally, with Maria based in Vienna and Anna in New York City. The Act of Sitting has been published by Pool-Publishing. In 2021, the duo exhibited with a solo exhibition Together Apart in Flatz Museum Dornbirn (Austria).
