Susanne Kriemann

Susanne Kriemann (1972, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. She studied under Joseph Kosuth and Joan Jonas at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart and holds a degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris. As an artist working with and on photography, Kriemann is especially attuned to the politics of image production in the so-called “age of the post-medium condition”. The reach of her investigative gaze includes the history of photography and kindred representations, Germany’s traumatic recent past, the obsolescence of industrialism and the constant metamorphosis of urban culture – all filtered through a relentless process of the medium’s self-questioning. Kriemann has presented her work internationally, including Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Kunsthalle Wien; Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Kunsthalle Winterthur; 21er Haus; Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and has participated in Moscow Biennial 2015 and 5th Berlin Biennial. Besides, she is a long-term advisor at the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht (NL) and co-founder of the artist initiative AIR Berlin Alexanderplatz in Berlin.
