Magdalena Kallenberger

Contributor Type: Artists

Magdalena Kallenberger (Berlin) is a visual artist, researcher and writer working across film, photography and installation. She holds an MFA in Media Art and a BFA both from the University of Arts Berlin. She served as Professor of Practice at the American University in Cairo (2016-2017) and Lecturer for time-based media (2010-16) at the German University in Cairo. Since 2018 Kallenberger is a Ph.D. candidate at the Bauhaus University Weimar.
She also is a fellow at the Bauhaus Research School and the Friedrich-Ebert Foundation. Her practice-based Ph.D. “Re/Production: Chronopolitics, Affective Labor, Care and the Maternal” takes diverse forms of research materials as a starting point to (re-) position the maternal as a space of social, political, cultural and economic conflict. Her artistic language combines art historical references with autobiographical elements and personal narratives, using humour and poetical fiction as a subversive method. Her works produced in solo and collective constellations have been shown nationally and internationally.
