In her objects and installations, the Stukenbrok-based artist Annie Fischer thematizes the crux of a human in a society where individual fulfilment has mutated into a leitmotif. You have to be yourself – no matter how!
In the 1950ies it was almost a liberation to escape the narrowness of the bourgeoisie, today, however, we face the tiresome task of leading a self-fulfilled life that has to be interesting at all cost.
In doing so we frequently have an agenda that is other-directed. We are being (self) lived.
Annie Fischer, born in Detmold in 1967, was trained as a weaver of pictures in Denmark, afterwards she studied textile design at the university of applied sciences Haandarbejdets Fremmes Seminarium Copenhagen. Since 1994 she has been working free-lance.
