Dagmar Schürrer is a media artist based in Berlin, Germany. The digital image, found and generated, is her material to form a visual language to reflect on the peculiar characteristics and the societal and individual implications of digital space. She assembles digitally generated objects and animations, text, drawings and sound to form intricate video sound montages, evocative of painting, collage or poetry.
Ever unfolding in changing variations they are presented on screen, as installations or combined with new technologies such as augmented reality. Her moving images reflect on the surface of digital imagery and their patterns and repetitions, on late capitalist paranoia and projected utopian futures and our relationship to technological development within the digital and the analogue.
She 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 of the Senate of Berlin and was shortlisted for the Berlin Art Prize and the Tenderpixel Award in London.
