Anna Reutinger, b. 1991 in Oakland, California lives and works in Berlin. Reutinger’s work questions the position of the digital-native-global-citizen and advocates for a return to craft and empathy. In her sculptural and installation practice, she uses waste and found material to construct environments and situations, which act as social and bodily antidotes to digital anxieties and environmental uncertainties. She received her M.F.A. in Dirty Art from the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam (2016), and her B.A. in Design Media Arts and Digital Humanities from UCLA (2013). Her work has been exhibited at the Saint Etienne Biennale, FR; Jan van Eyck Academie, W139, De Fabriek, NL; KlaraKiss Zipspace, CH; Macao Milano, IT; The Hammer Museum, The Getty Center, The New Wight Gallery, Chin’s Push and Control Room, Los Angeles, US.
