artist and writer

Eran Schaerf is an artist and writer with an academic background in architecture, urban planning, and photography. His practice focuses on architectures of discourse at the intersection of fashion, mass media, language, and the built environment and interweaves historical and contemporary political narratives in print, in space, on air, and—often in collaboration with writer and philosopher Eva Meyer—in film. His work has been shown widely in exhibitions such as the 54th Venice Biennale, Venice (2011), Skulptur Projekte Münster, Münster (2007), and Manifesta 2 in Luxemburg (1998). In 2013 Schaerf received the Käthe Kollwitz Prize awarded by the Akademie der Künste, Berlin. Schaerf lives and works in Berlin.
