Angela Anderson is an artist and filmmaker working at the intersection of the fields of philosophy, ecology, economics, migration, media and feminist & queer theory. Central to her work is an awareness of the intimate connection between media production, memory and apprehension, and the potential of audio-visual media to open up new lines of flight. Since 2013 she has been collaborating with Angela Melitopoulos on the audio-visual research projects Unearthing Disaster, The Refrain (2015) and Crossings (2017) which was shown in documenta 14. In 2016 she produced her short film The Sea Between You and Me and is currently developing her feature film project Frostville. Recent exhibitions include Minnesota Street Project (San Francisco – 2017), Framer Framed – Amsterdam (2016), Holbaek Images (2016), and the Thessaloniki Biennale (2015). She is the exhibition designer for Forum Expanded at the Berlin International Film Festival and has worked with many artists and filmmakers on the realization of performative, filmic, and installation projects.
She holds a BA in Economics and Latin American Studies from the University of Minnesota, an MA in Film and Media Studies from the New School (NYC). She lives and works in Berlin.
