Antje Majewski

Antje Majewski’s (*1968, Marl, DE) practice comprises paintings, video works, texts and performances that deploy an approach based on anthropological and philosophical questions. Her most recent works are centered around questioning objects, territories and plants, and focus on research surrounding alternate systems of knowledge, storytelling and the potential of transformative processes with a particular interest in cultural and geobotanical migration. An integral part of Majewski’s process is her recurring collaboration with other artists, ecological groups and urbanism—focused collectives. Works by Antje Majewski have been shown in a number of international exhibitions including those at Kunsthaus Graz (2019), Gropius Bau, Berlin (2019), Hamburger Bahnhof–Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin (2018), CCA Tel Aviv (2016). Majewski studied art history, history and philosophy in Cologne, Berlin and Florence, and has been a professor of painting at Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel since 2011. She lives and works in Berlin and Himmelpfort (DE).
