Birthe Piontek’s art practice explores the relationship between memory and identity, with a special interest in the topic of female identity and its representation in our society. Her main focus is photography but she also utilizes other art forms like installation, sculpture and collage to investigate to what degree our complex identities can be visualized. Piontek has exhibited internationally, in both solo and group shows, and is featured in many private and public collections such as the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago) and the Museum of Applied Arts (Gera). Piontek’s project The Idea of North won the Critical Mass Book Award 2009, and was published as a monograph in 2011. Her most recent work, Abendlied, received the Burtynsky Grant in 2018 and was published in April 2019.
