Ilse Haider (born 1965 in Salzburg) is an Austrian artist. She focuses on photography and her photographic works use three dimensional surfaces. She has received a number of awards for her work and her work has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States.


Ilse Haider completed her art studies in 1988 at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna under the direction of Arnulf Rainer. From 1988 to 1990 she completed additional studies at the Royal College of Art under the tutelage of Eduardo Paolozzi.[1] Between 1995 und 2001 she taught at the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz in Linz, Austria. In 2003 she was awarded the Kunstpreis der Stadt Wien.

Her photographic works are distinguished by the use of three-dimensional surfaces, achieved by the use of innovative methods in combination with traditional photographic technique. The content of her artwork often emphasizes the subject of "Man and Woman"

Her 2012 exhibit, 'Mr. Big' at the "Naked Men" ("Nackte Männer") exposition in the Leopold Museum (Vienna) has caused considerable local controversy.
