Anne Arndt

In her cross-media works, Anne Arndt critically and humorously scrutinises our public living space as a mirror of social cultures of power and remembrance. She understands walking as both a research method and a practice and engages with the history of the city and the people on site as architectural witnesses. For the residency at the Healing Complex, the artist is developing a site-specific participatory methodology that utilises walking, storytelling, listening, being together, talking, questioning, observing and perceiving. This approach aims to connect with local and diverse knowledge that enables a pluralistic, relational perspective. In the form of shared walks, the artist aims to stimulate the imagination and participate in the creation of new stories, adding new layers to them.

Anne Arndt studied Media Arts in Cologne and Artistic Research in The Hague and most recently showed her work in solo exhibitions at Glaskasten Marl (2022) and Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen (2022). Anne Arndt (*Schwerin) lives and works in Cologne.
