| Visualizing Hidden Structures in Art and Society

In her artistic practice, Andrea Büttner combines art history with social and ethical issues. Since the early 2000s, she has been exploring a wide range of themes such as work, poverty, shame and care in monastic forms of coexistence, but also arts and crafts as a political field. Examining the ambivalent tension between aesthetics and ethics, the internationally renowned artist uses various conceptual methods. Best known for her large-scale woodcuts, Büttner has since used a variety of media, including etching, painting, photography and video installations, glass art and textiles. For her publications and exhibitions, Büttner composes her works thematically to create site-specific installations that can be experienced as gradually unfolding narratives.

German artist ANDREA BÜTTNER (*1972, Stuttgart) studied fine arts, philosophy and art history in Tübingen and Berlin. Focussing on the relationship between shame and art, she received her PhD from the Royal College of Art in London in 2010. She took part in dOCUMENTA 13 and was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2017. Büttner is currently Professor of Art in Contemporary Context at the Kunsthochschule Kassel. She lives and works in Berlin.
