Dagmar Schürrer is a media artist based in Berlin, Germany. She assembles digitally generated objects and animations, text, drawings, and sound to create complex video sound montages, evokative of painting, collage, or poetry.
In ever-changing forms they are displayed on screen, as installations, or in combination with emerging technology such as augmented reality. The point of transition, where the digital and analogue, the real and virtual, and the abstract and representational collide, is at the center of Dagmar Schürrer’s artistic approach.
In her digital works, she considers new concepts of space and time, the materiality of the digital, computerization of thinking processes, late capitalist paranoia, and projected utopian futures as they relate to our growing commitment to digital technology and the societal and individual implications of digitalization.
Dagmar Schürrer holds a degree in Fine Art from Central Saint Martin’s College in London, UK. Her work has been exhibited internationally, amongst others at the New Contemporaries at the ICA London, the Moscow Biennale for Young Art, Transmediale Vorspiel in Berlin and the Museum of Waste in Changsha, China. Her videos have been screened at numerous festivals: SUPERNOVA in Denver, the Seattle Film Festival, the Athens Digital Arts Festival, the Horn Experimental Film Festival in Israel, Tricky Women Festival in Vienna, or the Diagonale Film Festival in Graz. In recent years, she received the Goldrausch Scholarship from the Senate of Berlin and was shortlisted for the Berlin Art Prize and the Tenderpixel Award in London.
