Katie Schaag is a writer and artist making multimedia work for the page, stage, gallery, screen, and social context.

Her work has been published by Ugly Ducking Presse, Metatron, Rabbit Catastrophe Press, Requited Journal, Vector Press, Nat. Brut, Oxeye Press, La Vague, and Word For/Word; staged at Hemsley Theatre; and exhibited at Woman Made Gallery, Co-Prosperity Sphere, Little Berlin, and elsewhere. In addition to her solo art practice she has a collaborative practice with SALYER + SCHAAG; their four-month participatory project Performing MMoCA was part of Madison Museum of Contemporary Art's 2016 Wisconsin Triennial. She recently earned her PhD in English Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with a specialization in performance studies and visual cultures and a minor in fine art and creative writing. She is at work on two scholarly projects, Conceptual Theatre and American Plasticity, and a conceptual erasure poetry project, The Infinite Woman. More info: katieschaag.com
