Annett Zinsmeister studied art, architecture, cultural studies and media studies. In 2003, she was appointed professor for art, design, conceptual design and interdisciplinary theory. Her work has garnered her awards and prizes and has been published in numerous magazines, trade journals, catalogs, and books. It can be seen in group and individual exhibitions worldwide and is represented in public and private collections such as the art collection of the German Bundestag in Berlin and MoMA – Museum of Modern Art in New York. Intersections between art and architecture, utopias and transformations of space and everyday objects are the central themes that Zinsmeister renegotiates in her artistic work. Within the form of installations, photographs, drawings, collages, film and texts, the artist opens up new perspectives and unexpected potentials in relation to inhospitable and abandoned places while initiating urban interventions and transformations.
