About the Artist

Hito Steyerl (born 1966 in Munich, Germany) is a filmmaker, visual artist, writer, and innovator of the essay documentary. Her prolific filmmaking and writing spans the fields of art, philosophy, and politics, constituting a deep exploration of late capitalism’s social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Her solo exhibitions include Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto), Art Institute of Chicago, Artists Space (New York City), E-flux (New York City), ICA (London), Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), Park Avenue Armory (New York City), Serpentine Galleries (London), and The Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston). Her work appeared in the 58th, 56th, and 55th Venice Biennale as well as Documenta 12. She has published her writing extensively, most recently in Duty Free Art–Art in the Age of Planetary Civil Wars (London: Verso, 2017 / Zurich: Diaphanes, 2018). In 2017, Art Review listed her as the most influential person in the art world. She is Professor for Experimental Film and Video at the UdK–University of the Arts, Berlin, where she lives and works. Andrew Kreps Gallery in New York City represents her work.


This event is made possible through a partnership with the Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts School of Art as part of their Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

The related exhibition was supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the New York State Legislature.
