Victoria Brännström works are usually some form of social interaction where the audience, an existing or created group interact with each other or though meeting an audience. Brännström´s own role in the various works ranges from performing to being on the side, directing.

The starting point of Brännström´s work is to create a platform for an issue or for a claim that is investigated through a created situation attempts to formulate a response or further questions. Gender, social patterns and the status and social codes are key issues that, in different ways , manifest themselves in Brännström´s works. There is a strong attraction towards folk tradition, the individual's story and the ability of a group in her sphere of influence. A place or a particular situation is often a prerequisite for the works.
