BIOGRAPHY
German conceptual artist Charlie Stein graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Stuttgart where she studied at the class of Christian Jankowski. Prior to this she received a classical education in painting at the class of Gerhard Merz at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. She also holds a master‘s degree in political science from the department of social sciences and a degree in English literature and linguistics from the University of Stuttgart. In her work she focuses on the perception of cultural identities and their implications in a globalised, interconnected world which she then translates into installations and projects that contain both a tangible quality and a distinct visual notion. She works with different media, ranging from sculpting and painting to media installations, video and performance.
