Stefanie Rau (*1989) has a background in visual communication and media theory, and has been involved in exhibition, publication and self-organized collaborative educational projects. Her artistic practice takes the approach to think through objects, situations or places to unravel their histories and implicated cultural, political or theoretical connections, and explores writing as performative or voiced articulations. With her practice she aims to inhabit an artistic space in-between disciplines and is interested in offering different perspectives and critical understandings that manifest in the form of essays, lecture performances and essay films.

From 2015 to 2016 her stay in the Netherlands was supported by a scholarship of the German Academic Exchange Council (DAAD).
