Matuschka exhibits and gives workshops at Universities and Photo Festivals throughout the world. She has spoken at Harvard, Columbia, Yale, The Contemporary Museum of Art, (Fort Lauderdale Florida) and The Art Cultural Center, (Malaga, Spain) to name a few.

Although known mostly as a photographer and model, Matuschka's works on paper and canvas remain a constant and essential element of her art. Since the turn of the century she has returned to abstraction, her primary art form. A print and postcard book entitled Bagit!, published by Hard Press Editions, can be purchased from this website.

Throughout her life, Matuschka often became the subject of her work. The artist's experience as a photographic assistant and model was essential to her development both behind a camera and in the darkroom. Working alongside masters such as Clemens Kalischer, Bill Silano, and the late Don Snyder, she learned the art of chemically toning and manipulating prints. In 2011 she was featured in John Loengards book "The Age of Silver: Encounters with Great Photographers" (PowerHouse). For a more in-depth bio, click here.

In the 90s, venues highlighting individuals who made a contribution to society included the artist in "Women of the 90s Who Changed the World" (Bunte Magazine, Germany), "Heroes" (People Magazine); "Person of the Week" (World-Wide News with Peter Jennings), and a feature interview on "The Charlie Rose Show".

The artist is available for presentations, modeling assignments, lectures, workshops, and exhibitions. For more information, please contact the artist directly at (212) 722-2131, or We hope you enjoy your visit!
