Dealing with memory and history is a central topic in contemporary art. This raises questions of how societies and communities deal with monuments, places of remembrance and forms of commemoration today. In what way images, photographs and archives influence media representations of the past within the present. What are artistic strategies to visualise these processes, to reflect and critically question them. The workshop by Luise Schröder will be dedicated to (im)-possibilities of artistic strategies dealing with the past and the present. Together with the students the artist wants to practically engage with their works within the exhibition, discuss and reflect their strategies.

Luise Schröder is a visual artist working in France and Germany.She studied Photography and Media Arts at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, Germany. Within her artistic practice she is dealing with aspects of “history in the making” from a today’s perspective. She is interested in how cultures of remembrance and commemoration are influenced and formed by political agendas, media and image production and how this affects identities and communities. In recent years, Luise Schröder has taken part in numerous single and group exhibitions, among others at the Rencontres International Paris/ Berlin (FRANCE), at the Kunsthalle Baden Baden (GER), at the Gallery EIGEN+ART (Berlin/Leipzig, GER), and at the 7th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art in Berlin. Alongside numerous other distinctions, the artist got the C/O Talents Preis [C/O Talents Award] in 2012, the SpallArt Price Salzburg in 2020 and the Young Talent Award of the Federal State of Brandenburg in 2021. Furthermore she was holding a residency at the Villa Aurora in Los Angeles in 2016 and was awarded a residency at Cité Internationale des Arts in 2018/19 in Paris by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. Recently she is working on her project: La Barricade – Existing as a promise, which is supported by the French Ministry of Culture CNAP and Ateliers Médicis.
