Luise Schröder is a visual artist who lives and works in Germany and France. She studied Photography and Media Arts at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig. In her multimedia works (photography, video, installation, performance, printed matter) she deals with the construction of history and the concept of memory and their significance for the present. Central to her concerns is the question as to how far official commemoration is influenced by political, social and media developments and how that feeds back into identities and communities. Luise Schröder does not regard the past as a discrete entity, but as something permanently open and in a direct relation to the present.
Luise Schröder has presented works and projects internationally in various solo and group exhibitions, as well as film festivals, including Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin (F), Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (DE), Galerie EIGEN+ART (Berlin/Leipzig, DE), the 7th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art in Berlin (DE), Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien (Berlin DE), Musée Carnavalet / Paris History Museum (Paris, F), French Institute (Kyoto, JPN) BIENALSUR – International Biennial of Contemporary Art of the South (Córdoba, ARG), Alternative Film/Video Festival (Belgrade, SRB) and Kassel Dok – Documentary/Video/Art (Kassel, DE). She received the C/O Talents Award, the SpallArt Preis Salzburg and the photography grant Regards du Grand Paris #4 supported by the Cnap – Centre national des arts plastiques and Ateliers Médicis. She was a resident at Villa Aurora in Los Angeles and at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. She is also a member of the women artist collective: THE CROWN PROJECT (www.crownproject.art) and she is currently working on her publication (Strömungen in Bewegung) supported by the Stiftung Kunstfonds Bonn.
