Lotte Meret Effinger (DE)
Lotte Meret Effinger's (b. 1985 in Berlin, Germany) projects and collaborations range from video, installation and performance to publishing, curating, and writing. The main focus of her artistic practice is to analyze the effects of digital media and new technology on our self-identity. Her work has been presented in institutions including Kunsthalle Basel (CH), Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (GER) and at the Arsenale in Venice (IT). It has been acquired by Lafayette Anticipation (FR), UVE art collection (GER), and Kunstkredit Basel-Stadt (CH). As an artist-in-residence at the Van Eyck, she produced a new video work that investigates interferences of our identities within structures of science, alchemy, sexuality, psycho-sociality, trans/post-humanism and shamanism. She also collaborated with Sharon van Overmeiren, James Gregory Atkinson and Rodrigo Red Sandoval on a group exhibition at the Van Eyck that explored aesthetic strategies to question the symbolic logic of capitalism.
