Mirjam Kroker

With an academic background in Fine Arts/Culture and Social Anthropology, my way of working is research-based and extends from sonic recordings, document drawings, video sequences and objects, to working environments and spatial narratives. With a tendency for conceptual ideas and imaginative thinking. I address the making of any artwork as a way of thinking. Thus the artwork itself becomes another dispositive to think with the aptitude to reconfigure details of the given reality.

Attentive the process of acquiring, producing, co-producing, adapting, inhabiting, transferring, integrating, reflecting and disseminating different forms of knowing. I approach art-making as situated practice and therefore travel and work at various sites, and sometimes approach research collaboratively and seek to work beyond disciplines. Interested in embodied criticality I question what can be grasped, the possible agency of a work and the context in which it is placed. Currently, I work with the support through receiving a Saxon State Scholarship for 2 years on research with the working title, the Universe as your Library and the World as your Studio.
