Alice Creischer:

Alice Creischer (b. Gerolstein, DE, 1960) lives and works in Berlin. Studied Philisophy, German Language and Literature at Düsseldorf University, DE (1981-1987). Awards and grants include the Edvard Munch Preis, Oslo (2006); Senatsstipendium, Berlin (2005); and Kunstfonds bonn (1988). The central theme of Creischer’s artistic and theoretical work is revealing processes and machinations in politics and business and their culture. For this, Creischer usually selects a real historical reference point and embeds this in a new and freely chosen narrative. Select solo exhibitions include Culturgest, Lisbon, Pt (2017); In the Stomach of the Predators, KOW, Berlin and bak, Utrecht (2014); Social Fabric, ifa Stuttgart / ifa Berlin (with Sudhir Patwardhan) (2013); The Establishment of Matters of Fact, KOW, Berlin (2012); and Apparatus for the Osmotic Pressure of Wealth During the Contemplation of Poverty, MACBA, Barcelona, ES (2008). Select group exhibitions include Out of the Dark, KOW, Berlin, DE (2016); Frontier Imaginaries, IMA Institute of Modern Art Brisbane, AU (2016); Anti:modern, Museum der Moderne, Salzburg (with Andreas Siekmann) (2016); Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art (2016); From Here to Afternoon, D21, Leipzig (2015); Kunst-Geschichten, Museum der Moderne, Salzburg (2014); and 13th Istanbul Biennial (2013).
