Birgit Megerle is a German painter. She will talk about recent exhibitions and the performance-group Kontakt Sappho, an ongoing project operative since 2012, which consists of the artists Sonja Cvitkovic, Michaela Meise and Birgit Megerle herself.
She will also talk about her involvement with the Akademie Isotr̃op; an independent art school, that was founded by a collective of Hamburg artists, authors, and musicians in 1996 and existed until 2000. The academy was conceived as an experimental learning environment based on a democratic formulation of classes, student-teacher relationships, and exhibitions.
Megerle (*1975 in Geisingen) lives and works in Berlin. Her next solo-exhibition will be at Kunsthaus Glarus, in Switzerland May 2017.
