Dorothee Kreutzfeldt

Dorothee Kreutzfeldt (b.1970, Windhoek, Namibia) is based in Johannesburg. Her interest in urban structures and their embedded socio-political histories and imaginations have informed her paintings, research and collaborations over the last twenty years. The city of Johannesburg has played a central role in her life and work, and continues to anchor questions around how the city crafts, undermines and explodes the experiences of time, space and subjectivity. Previous to City Without a Sun at blank projects (2018), solo shows included Extensions to the Lot Line (2017); At Present, (2015); and The Immanent Inauguration of the 5th Corner (2010) at blank projects, and HERE WE (2016) at Room Gallery & Projects in Johannesburg. In 2013 she co-authored the book Not No Place, Johannesburg: Fragments of Spaces and Times with Bettina Malcomess. Concurrent to her artistic practice and travels, Kreutzfeldt lectures at the Wits School of Arts and is working towards a PhD.
