About Susanne Strassmann

Born in Germany, she lives and works in Marseille, France. Residency and solo show at the Gobe Gallery Newcastle supported by the University of Newcastle (2018). Her series “Duplizität der Fälle” was shown at the Artscape Luxembourg gallery at the private club House 17 (2016) and at the Musée Regards de Provence in Marseille (2018). In 2015, she carried out the “Business portraits” project sponsored by the FRAC PACA and the J5 Archi-Culturel in twenty companies in the Euromediterranean sector in Marseille. For the capital of Culture Marseille Provence 13 she engaged in a "conversation in painting" with artist Eric Maillet (sound) in community bars. This work was exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Le Pont, Mac, 2013).
A monograph of her work is published by Al Dante (2014). She has been commissioned as a photographer, notably by Art Basel and Frieze art fair, London, for the artist's book "Art People or employees" (2011). Her work has been exhibited at the Rencontres internationales de la photographie d'Arles, Voies off in 2008, at the Porte Avion gallery in Marseille (Art-O-Rama 2011 course), at the Galerie Territoires Partagées (2017), the Galerie Dupré & Dupré Beziers (2017), at Art Week Luxembourg (2017, 2019). Motivated by her interest in the behavior of the individual in different groups of society and in the urban space, she establishes connections between painting, photography and performance.
