MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
Johannes Paul Raether is an artist who lives and works in Berlin. At the center of his work are constructed identities (Avataras, AlterIdentities or SelfSisters) emerging at various sites in public space where they research, teach and tell stories. In the guise of his so-called self-sisters, named Transformella, Protektorama, or Schwarmwesen, Raether challenges conventional assumptions about identities, bodies, and technology.
Raether’s works and performances were shown at, among others, the 9th Berlin Biennale, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Fridericianum in Kassel, transmediale 2017 in Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions took place at District in Berlin, Transmission Gallery in Glasgow, and Ludlow 38 in New York City. Raether publishes in Texte zur Kunst and is currently Professor at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf.
This program has been organized in close cooperation with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
