Katja Mater

Katja Mater is a visual artist, filmmaker, editor, organizer and educator who studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and subsequently at the postdoctoral instituut de Ateliers in Amsterdam, with a practice that focuses on the parameters of photography and film as non-transparent media.

By creating hybrids between photography, film, drawing, performance and installation Mater documents something that is often positioned beyond our human ability to see. Interested in revealing a different or alternative (experience of) reality through capturing the areas where optical media hardly behave like the human eye, by mediating between time, space, perception and our understanding of them, while recording events that simultaneously can and cannot be – holding midway between information and interpretation. Next to a solo practice as a visual artist Mater is involved in different collaborative projects, as editor of Girls Like Us Magazine since 2014 and as one of the founding member of Mothers & Daughters, a Lesbian* and Trans* Bar.
