Alice Creischer

Artist, Writer and Curator

Alice Creischer is a German artist, curator, writer and theorist. Her artistic practice and theoretical work focuses on issues of economic and institutional critique, globalisation and the history of capitalism. Rather than concentrating on the production of individual works, Creischer centers on the process of inquiry to illuminate particular political histories of given contexts. Adopting prop-like devices and meticulously crafted and sewn objects, Creischer choreographs a space within a system of coordinates that deconstruct yet another set of given historical relations. Extending beyond artistic production, Creischer has also been prolific in her critical writings and curatorial projects.
