Lotte Meret’s artistic practice focuses on the analysis of the effects of digital media and new technologies on our identity. In videos, installations, performances, publications and curatorial projects, often in collaboration with other artists, the relationship between supposedly fixed identities and our social and economic structures is examined: How do we define ourselves in relation to our environment, society and new technologies?
