Barbara Lubich (born in Trento in 1977) lived in Italy until she was 21. Her main research interest while studying sociology and working on a PhD in Contemporary History (both in Germany and Italy) has been led by the question of how theory and praxis interlace in aesthetic phenomena. She has been working as a filmmaker since 2002, balancing between documentary and artfilm. She has developed videoconcepts and dramaturgy for interdisciplinary exhibitions like dance! Moves that move us (Deutsches Hygiene-Museum (2013–2014). While working with graduates of the Hochschule für Bildende Kunst Dresden, she was a guest student of the media art class of Lutz Dammbeck (2006–2007). Since 2006 she has been working as a camera operator for the Forsythe Company. She was awarded a scholarship at Hellerau Academy in the field of experimental music theatre under the directorship of Gerhard Stäbler (2009–2010) and was artist in residence at UBU Gallery New York (2010). Her performative projects realised with the collective friedrichstadtZentral (Art Award of the City of Dresden 2013) informed her artistic approach, which is based on layering, structured improvisation and hyperidentification with canonised knowledge. Her strong interest in the acoustic dimension of filmmaking has been shaped by her collaboration with musician and sound designer Nikolaus Woernle since 2006. The works presented in this exhibition are also a result of this collaboration.
