Britta Thie

Season 2 · Episode 1

Britta Thie is a Berlin-based artist whose work engages emerging technologies and the relationship between self and digital representation. She studied fine arts at the Universität der Künste in Berlin in the class of Hito Steyerl and is currently teaching as a guest professor for Performance at the Offenbach University of Art and Design. In her practice Thie often depicts her own body to examine the meaning of the figurative image in a product-driven society. In recent years she has shown her work amongst others at Julia Stoschek Collection (Berlin), Anthology Film Archives (New York), Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin) and had solo presentations at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt and Schinkel Pavillon in Berlin.  At Münchner Kammerspiele she debuted as a theatre director staging the live Sitcom "The Superhost" which premiered in 2016 at and was aired in April 2017 on Arte TV. In her STRRR TV episode, Thie presents, amongst others a great clip by the Swiss artist duo Fischli & Weiss, a spectacular video by Amnesia Scanner and a disturbing excerpt from a TED talk that focuses on self-optimization
