• Janis Lew Schroeder uses the artistic means of video, photography, writing, and installations. His practice is about the influence, the language, and the economy of images as representations of reality. At the center of his artistic interests are the production of public and private urban space by its inhabitants; the handling of common goods as well as the mining and processing of natural resources; and the development of social and cultural relations in a context of industrialization, technologization, and digitization.

     

    He is currently an artistic researcher at the Geneva School of Art and Design where he works on the research project The Anthropocene Atlas of Geneva. Representations of Global Environmental Change in Geneva’s Urban Ecologies, supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
    With Chiara Bertini, he co-founded the artist collective studio rebat in 2016. From 2013 to 2016 he was an artist-researcher in the Research-based Master Programme CCC – Critical Curatorial Cybermedia at the Geneva School of Art and Design. He earned a master’s degree in the same course of studies in 2013. In 2011 he received his bachelor’s degree in visual arts in the field of video and photography at the Geneva School of Art and Design. From 2007 to 2009 he studied film, video, and photography at Kunstakademie Münster, Germany.
