Elske Rosenfeld

Born in Halle, East Germany, 1974, lives and works in Berlin and is currently a participant of the PhD in Practice program at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and a recipient of a DOC-Fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Her work explores different methodologies – installations and video, writing and talks, workshops and events – to refocus the diverse historical positions of criticality and dissidence within the different state socialisms of the former Eastern bloc and, in particular, the upheavals of 1989/ 1990. Using her own biographical experience as well as other materials and stories that often brush up against the dominant representations of those histories, her works aim at creating constantly reassembling communities of discussion and contestation though which the obscured political potentials of those histories might re-emerge.
