The Longega Project team currently consists of Fabian Feichter, Youlee Ku, Judith Neunhäuserer and Siyoung Kim. All team members are visual artists themselves and have known each other for around 10 years, from their student days at the Munich Art Academy.

It was born as an individual opportunity for rediscovery, an opportunity to experience art in a place outside of modern times, away from the rhythms and influences of the city.

Longega Project offers nature with a mysterious and fascinating character, always a source of inspiration for people and their art. From the first graffiti found in caves to 19th century painting and contemporary land art.

An approach to the environment has become more important, which is another reason why the identification of artists with their surroundings is a broad and necessary theme.

Longega Project offers a new vision: the individual artist re-enters the central point and is confronted with the great power and attraction of the mountains, the forest and the water.

Longega Project for all participants becomes a confrontation with oneself.

Fabian Feichter

Fabian Feichter (*1986 in Bressanone, Italy) lives and works between Munich, South Tyrol and South Korea. Feichter comes from a family of artists: his father and grandfather are wood sculptors, his mother a painter. In 2014, he completed his studies in sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich as a master student of Olaf Metzel. His diploma thesis was awarded the DAAD Prize. In 2019, he received the Ludwig Gies Prize of the LETTER Foundation.

Feichter works primarily with performance, video and sculpture, each with a sarcastic sense of humour. Since 2017 he has also been experimenting with analogue electronic music and is part of three music groups: Kunststoffwerkstatt, Verra and Frauenstrasse. In the same year, he founded Longega Project with Youlee Ku.

Judith Neunhäuserer

Judith Neunhäuserer (*1990 in Bruneck, Italy) currently lives in Munich and Milan. In her artistic practice she deals with attempts at demarcation as well as aesthetic and epistemic commonalities between science and religion. She studied sculpture and religious and cultural studies in Munich and Istanbul.
Expeditions took her to Neumayer Station III in Antarctica, to the Spanish underground laboratory LSC Canfranc and across the Atlantic with the CMA CGM Puget. In April 2022, she travelled the Arctic Ocean on a sailing vessel as part of The Arctic Circle.

In 2018, she published the expedition report “Albedo” with Hammann von Mier Verlag with the Gedok Munich's debutante funding, and in 2021 her second monograph “Tekeli-li” was published by Textem Verlag Hamburg. In 2019, she received the Fine Arts Scholarship of the City of Munich (with Mathias R. Zausinger) and was a scholarship holder of the South Tyrolean Artists’ Association (Südtiroler Künstlerbund) at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. Her work is exhibited internationally.

Judith Neunhäuserer has been a team member of Longega Project since 2020.
