Anna Gohmert is a German artist living in Stuttgart. Her work ranges from text, video and photography to installations and performances. In mostly combining these media, she reflects on her relationship to the world. She is interested in humans, in particular: their exchange with each other and their way of dealing with common and extraordinary circumstances. Who behaves in which way, when, how often and why?
She studied visual arts at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart under Prof. Christian Janowski, Prof. Dr. Felix Ensslin, Prof. Ulf Aminde, Prof. Mariella Mosler and Prof. Werner Pokorny. In November 2016, she presented her Master’s thesis at Villa Merkel, Esslingen. Since 2012, she has been receiving a fellowship of the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and is a fellow of the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg in 2017. From 2015 to 2017, she attended the Geisteswissenschaftliche Kolleg with main emphasis on documentary film.
With Marie Köhler, she once again runs a cultural academy for arts in public areas in 2017.
Her work has been displayed at e. g. KW Institute for Contemporary Art/ Berlin, at the Sculpture triennale/ Eslingen, at Wiensowski & Harbord/ Berlin, at the Fanaberie Performance Festival at Bunkier Stzuki, Krakau, Project space LOTTE/ Stuttgart, at the Filmwinter/ Stuttgart, the Taut/ Stuttgart and the Villa Merkel/ Esslingen.
From November 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018, Anna Gohmert is a fellow in the framework of the »WimmelResearch-Fellowship«, a joint project between Robert Bosch GmbH, Akademie Schloss Solitude, and Wimmelforschung.
