Guest Residency 2013: Christine Schulz

The scholarship holder is a German artist (born in Braunschweig) and currently lives in Berlin and Garbolzum. Her work can be found in photography, media art and video art.
In 2003 she was a master student of John Armleder, having previously (1996 to 2001) completed her studies in Fine Arts at the HBK in Braunschweig. In 2001, she received the sponsorship award from the Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven; this was followed in 2009 by project funding from the Nord/LB Öffentliche Foundation and the Braunschweigischer Kulturbesitz Foundation.
In both her media installations and her photographic works, the artist explores the ambivalent character of the image as a reflection and construction of reality, demonstrating the transience of the moment by combining short video sequences or photographic elements into collage-like image structures. Various elements (normally separated by space and time) are combined with one another, thus questioning familiar viewing habits and supposedly immovable truths. Depending on the context and exhibition situation, Christine Schulz reflects on various socially relevant themes in different ways. Characteristic of the installative approach is the construction of new spatial structures and systems of order that react to the given space. With the help of projections and temporary architectural elements, the artist creates ephemeral installations that vary in their visual impact depending on the context and theme.
Since 1999, her works have been shown in numerous exhibitions, for example in Leipzig, Berlin and New York in 2016. ↗
