Video animation and Drawings

Domestic Warscapes deals with the socio-economic and ecological results of a brutal border drawn between Tijuana (Mexico) and San Diego (USA) and the resulting penetration of environmental poisons into the human body on both sides. Breastmilk ordered online and purchased on location at specifically arranged places is used as drawing material by the artist. Glauer transfers images of war machines and industrial facilities, taken from propaganda symbolisms of a hegemonial concept of man over nature, into an animation film. The process is also a discursive interactive method: with the performance plotting human border milk a refurbished plotter becomes a drawing machine. During the performance ironing human border milk the milk drawings are burnt into visibility by ironing. Due to the absence of an immediate verifiability of the invisible drawings, ironing them becomes a cognitive process.

Lisa Glauer taught as Associate in the MFA Program Public Art and New Artistic Strategies at Bauhaus-University in Weimar (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar) since 2009, focussing in particular on developing and implementing international projects. She grew up in London, Marseille, Rabat, Prague, Genoa and Athens. She studied Linguistics at Georgia Augusta University, Göttingen, Political Science and Visual Art at San Jose State University, Visual Art at State University of New York, Purchase (BFA), completing her graduate studies in Painting and Art History at Pratt Institute, New York (dual degree, MFA/MS). She then completed the postgraduate program Art in Context, at the University of the Arts, Berlin (MA), and defended her PhD, focussing on (human) milk as drawing material, and historic science fiction imagery from the GDR/FRG, in the PhD Programm in Art and Design at Bauhaus-Universität, Weimar, with highest honors (summa cum laude). She is co-founder of the project space arttransponder in Berlin and was its artistic co-director until 2009. arttransponder focuses on participatory art at the interface to other disciplines.
