Hanna Nitsch was born in Freiburg in 1974. She studied philosophy and German language and literature, and later liberal arts with Peter Dreher and Silvia Bächli in Karlsruhe. In 2003, she was accepted into the Cusanuswerk's programme for gifted students. She completed her studies with Herrman Albert and Klaus Stümpel at the HBK Braunschweig in 2007 as a master student. The artist has recently had solo exhibitions at the municipal galleries in Braunschweig, Wolfsburg and Wiesbaden.
For Hanna Nitsch, the central questions of artistic multimedia practice include questions of identity, of self-perception and perception by others, of object and subject, of role patterns and stereotypes and the resulting critique of posthuman body design in the age of digital and social media. Where is the authenticity of the body subject in the age of capitalist mass objectification of the body? Is there an inaccessible last space of the "inside"?
Among the central questions of my artistic practice are those of role patterns and stereotypes, my role as an artist, woman and mother in society, questions of self-perception and perception by others, as well as the resulting criticism of posthuman body design in the age of digital and social media. Where is the authenticity of the body subject in the age of capitalist mass dressing of the body? Is there an inaccessible last space of the "inside"?
