Katja Strunz


The Artist

Born 1970 in Ottweiler, Germany, Strunz lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
The works of Katja Strunz bear the traces of lived experience, of a past that manifests itself through the use of recycled materials. Her sculptural practice, seeped in history, finds its roots in the constructivists and avant-gardes. While elegant in their construction, the sculptures also retain a handmade aspect, revealing their aging over time.
Strunz was the protagonist of many solo exhibitions in many galleries and museums, including: Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Indianapolis (2019); Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin (2018 and 2008); Andersen's Contemporary, Copenhagen (2014); Berlinische Galerie, Berlin (2013); The Modern Institute, Glasgow (2012); Almine Rech Gallery, Brussels (2011); Saarlandmuseum, Saarbrücken and Muzeum Sztuki w Łodzi, Łódź (2010); Camden Arts Centre, London (2009); Museum Haus Esters, Krefeld, Germany (2006); Gavin Brown's enterprise, New York (2005).
Among the group exhibitions, we mention: Eduardo Secci Contemporary, Florence (2019)-; Guangong Museum of Art, Guangzhou, China (2018); Museion Bozen, Bozen (2015); Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zürich (2013); 30th São Paulo Biennial, São Paulo (2012); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2009); Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (2008); Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2006); Kunstverein in Hamburg, Hamburg (2004).

The most notable ones include: Centre Georges Pompidou, MNAM, Paris; Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich; Boros Collection, Berlin; Daimler Art Collection, Berlin; Muzeum Sztuki w Łodzi, Łódź; Sammlung der Berlinischen Galerie, Berlin.
