Stephanie Kiwitt (D) lives in Brussels. She works with various photographic concepts, genres and techniques that emerge from a thematic exploration of changes in urban structures, the architecture of today's consumer culture, the body culture and the world of work. By means of long-term, detailed observations, she responds to the specifics of various locations, such as the centre of Marseille in the course of massive construction projects, the wasteland Wondelgemse Meersen in the north of Ghent, discounters in Brussels, the urban space of Prague as an image of neoliberal change, or a recruitment building for dock workers in Antwerp.
She condenses her extensive photographic series in artist's books and exhibition settings into a pictorial space that oscillates between highest representativeness and absolute artificiality. Her precise image compositions subtly interrogate the conditions of our economised present.
She studied Photography at the Institute of Creative Photography, Opava, and at the Academy of Fine Arts, Leipzig.
