Born in Gerolstein (DE), lives in Berlin (DE).
German artist Alice Creischer is the author of a body of work situated between the genres of institutional critique and theatrical grammar that articulates her work between the unveiling of the dependencies between the political, the economical and the cultural structures on one hand, and a bitter and ironic approach to the absurdities of their justifying discourses. Writer and organiser, Creischer has collaborated with artists such as Andreas Siekmann in curating and organising the exhibition 'Ex Argentina' (Buenos Aires and Cologne, 2002-2006). Creischer’s work investigates how the hidden tensions behind the liberal economic system transforms in a “machine to create inequity”.
