Astrid Kaemmerling’s work sets out to analyze the cultural production of space. Moving beyond the canvas her most recent works are large scale tape-installations that explore the psychogeographical environment of a given exhibition site. Her artistic practice builds upon the legacy of the Situationist International and is influenced by thinkers such as Henri Lefebvre and Michel De Certeau.
Astrid Kaemmerling is currently completing her PhD at the School of Interdisciplinary Arts at Ohio University. Before moving to the United States in 2012, she attended TU Dortmund University, Germany where she double majored in Art and American Studies. Guided by an interdisciplinary team of Professor’s Astrid Kaemmerling continues to explore innovative solutions to combine both, artistic and scholarly research. She recently moved to San Francisco, CA, USA where she is conducting fieldwork for her dissertation with the tentative title “Walking the Gentrifying Streetscape: Artistic Practice in San Francisco’s Mission District (2000-2015).”
