Magdalena AT BAR

Magdalena’s work takes place where the analog meets the digital, man meets machine and outrage becomes art. It is important for her to comment on developments in the world and society, and to contribute with her own skills and activism. Therefore the emotional response to very current issues such as the concept of borders or the ongoing refugee crisis drives her artistic efforts. Using research as a foundation, she questions art and design and the relatively artificial boundaries between them in her own practice. Her work includes products, interactive experiences and installations, scenography, video, sound, as well as a variety of computational art projects. Experimentation is her strategy, between humor and seriousness she engages with her audience. Lately, she focuses on new ways of storytelling and experimental journalism such as VR documentary or 360° video to beat the media with it’s own new weapons.
