Andrea Geyer is an artist working and living in New York City.
Andrea’s video was made for WSJ4 while she was recently in central Australia, working on a project exploring the relationship of culture and religion at the Hermannsburg Mission. Established on Aboriginal lands by German Lutherans in the nineteenth century, Hermannsburg became home to the Hermannsburg school of Aboriginal art. Her work will explore the cultural impact of Christianisation on the local community both historically and currently.
Andrea’s work uses both fiction and documentary strategies across photography, video, text and performance to address the ongoing re-adjustment of cultural meanings and social memories. Her work has been shown very widely all around the world, including The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City; the Tate Modern and Serpentine Gallery in London; and dOCUMENTA (12) in Kassel, Germany. She is Associate Professor of New Genres, Art, Media and Technology at Parsons, The New School.
