Lotte Meret Effinger @ Kunstraum, Jul 8

6 July 2016

Lotte Meret Effinger is screening ‘Supernature’ (2014), followed by a conversation with curator Cédric Fauq, at London’s Kunstraum London on July 8.

Meret Effinger’s practice engages with the western visual regime to disrupt its inner hierarchical and patriarchal order, using video, writing, performance, photography and graphic-design. The press release highlights the way her work consistently blurs the lines between two fronts: the mainstream and the subaltern, the desirable and the repulsive, the perceptible and the hidden.

The Berlin-based artist has recently shown work in a group show at Kunstehalle Basel called Guys, Here Comes the Master Plan, which was a response to the over-circulation of digital imagery within visual culture, and in 2013 made a ‘Manifesto Against Representation’, printed on various textiles and installed in space.

See the Kunstraum website for more details.**
