The Berlin-based artist Loretta Fahrenholz works in the mediums of film, photography and installation. Her ongoing investigations into contemporary media conditions improvise a decidedly post-cinematic approach to documentary, exploiting digital postproduction and AI to reveal truths about social reality today. Often referencing Hollywood genres such as disaster flicks, sci-fi and fantasy, the artist constructs hybrid docu-narratives whereby the screen begins to function as a new kind of interface between the artist and the city, bodies and institutions, the real and the programmed.
Fahrenholz’s work has been shown internationally, including solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bergen, Berlin (2023), Kölnischer Kunstverein (2022), n.b.k. – Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2021), mumok – Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation, Vienna (2018), Fridericianum, Kassel (2016), Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2016), and Kunsthalle Zürich (2015), as well as film screenings at Ann Arbor Film Festival (2019, 2020, 2021) Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen (2014, 2020), Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2019), Image Festival Toronto (2016), Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami (2015), and Anthology Film Archives, New York (2015).
