Artist Talk | Janine Eisenächer

Thursday April 20, 2017 at 6pm
The Physics Room, Christchurch

Janine Eisenächer is a feminist performance artist, curator, and writer based in Berlin. She develops solo, duo, and group performances as well as interventions in public space in which she deals with the subjects of work and collaboration, focusing on specific questions related to identity, gender, (post-)colonialism, racism, and activism. In her lecture and sound performance series Eat Your Enemy, which is based upon the Brazilian vanguard cultural concept ‘Antropofagia’, Eisenächer discusses imaginary voyages, the discourse of the ‘Other’, artists’ labour, and the politics and economies at play in the art field.

Janine is the 2017 Goethe-Institut New Zealand Artist in Residence and currently based in Wellington. See more.
