In her artworks Angela Kaisers reflects on people’s behavior within structures of power and in situations of emotional conflict, set in the context of past and current events, popular culture and mainstream media. Appropriating and manipulating found footage image material digitally, she creates new narratives with an ironic twist, questioning what we have comfortably taken for granted. These digital collages form the base for her acrylic paintings and large-scale machine embroideries.
Angela Kaisers studied Photography in San Francisco and Amsterdam (B.F.A, Gerrit Rietveld Academie) and Art in Context in Berlin (M.A., University of the Arts Berlin). Her work has been shown in Berlin and throughout Europe (e.g. Prague, Seville and Madrid).
Angela lives and works in Berlin.
