Sandra Schäfer

PhD in Art
Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg

Sandra Schäfer deals in her artistic work with the production of urban and trans-geographical spaces, history and visual politics. She is interested in the margins, gaps and discontinuities of our perception of history, political struggles, urban and geopolitical spaces. She works with film and video installations including stills/photography. Therein she puts a particular focus on the role of the camera and the visual regimes that are implicated in these visual technologies as well as their social role. Her PhD in Art at HfbK Hamburg focuses on situated militancy in visual and spatial politics. Her works were shown worldwide with recent exhibitions at the Berlin Berlinale Forum Expanded (2016, 2017); Depo, Istanbul; La Virreina, Barcelona; National Gallery of Art, Vilnius; Camera Austria, Graz; House of World Cultures, Berlin; Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin; neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst, Berlin; Center for Art and Media (ZKM), Karlsruhe; etc. Furthermore, she is an associated member of the feminist film distributor Cinenova in London. She also has an extensive repertoire in public speaking at various conferences and events.
