Teresa Retzer

Portrait of Teresa Retzer

Teresa Retzer is an art historian, writer, and curator. She studied art history and philosophy in Vienna, Siena, Zurich, and Basel. She has presented her research at international conferences and has written scientific texts for catalogues and journals. She is interested in how society is influenced by digital infrastructures as a means of cultural production. By discussing established and emerging strategies of representation alongside each other, Retzer sheds light on knowledge creation and the historiography hiding in plain sight within everyday media, politics, and art.  Since 2017, she has concentrated on contemporary right-wing extremist subcultures in former East Germany, especially in light of the right-wing activism once again escalating all over Europe. Since 2019, she is working in the curatorial department of the ZKM | Karlsruhe Center for Art and Media. You can read samples of her writing and follow her work at www.teresaretzer.com.
