Luise Schröder is a visual artist living and working in Germany and France. She studied Photography and Media Arts at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig. In her multimedia works (photography, video, installation, performance, printed matter) she deals with the construction of history and the concept of memory and their significance for the present. She is interested in how cultures of remembrance and commemoration are influenced and formed by political agendas, media and image production and how this affects identities and communities. She does not regard the past as a self-contained whole, but as something permanently open in direct relation to the present.
Luise Schröder has presented works and projects internationally in various solo and group exhibitions, as well as film festivals, including Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, 7th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin, Musée Carnavalet, Paris, Alternative Film/Video Festival, Belgrade and Kassel Dok – Documentary/Video/Art. She received the C/O Talents Award, the SpallArt Preis Salzburg and the photography grant Regards du Grand Paris #4. She was a resident at Villa Aurora in Los Angeles and at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. She is also a member of the women artist collective: THE CROWN PROJECT and she is currently working on her publication, Strömungen in Bewegung.
For KAMERA SERIES, Luise Schröder is presenting for the first time in Berlin her work La Barricade – Existing as a promise | a documentary and conceptual artistic project that explores the pictorial and photographic myth of barricades in Paris and France over the centuries. The installation deals also with the role of the barricade as a revolutionary and architectural object, as well as the role of the collective and its social interactions in times of building a barricade.
