Elke Reinhuber is not your average artist, since she became a specialist on choice, decision making and counterfactual thoughts in media arts while completing her PhD in media arts at COFA, Sydney. As a decidophobic in her own life, she explores in particular alternative layers of the here and now with immersive environments and expanded photography, trying to establish the term ‘Counterfactualism’ in the arts.
Ms. Reinhuber teaches and researches as an assistant professor at NTU in Singapore since last year. Initially, after becoming a professional industrial photographer, she studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, as well as in London, Bologna and Sydney before she started teaching at the Braunschweig University of the Arts and then founded the department for Media Design at the German University in Cairo.
Just recently she has been invited as visiting artist at the ZKM in Karlsruhe and developed a semi-circular video projection for the ballet “Mythos”, applying thermographic imaging. Her artwork was presented in several international institutions, f.i. at ZKM, Fotomuseum Winterthur and the Grid Photofestival Amsterdam and can be seen online on ‘An Inquiry into Modes of Existence’, commissioned by Bruno Latour in 2014.
