LOWLAND stands for an imaginary space of free thought, of a fantastic sphere, of desire and controversy. The art magazine includes a collective of writers and artists from various disciplines and combines diverse artistic positions.
The collective was founded by Anne Pflug, Christiana Teufel, and Damaris Wurster.
Anne Pflug (1989) works in the fields of performance, video, and music to explore the creation of bodies and realities. She is part of several music projects, including Perigon und Foam. She studied at Merz Akademie Stuttgart with Quigley, Muhle, Ott and Dreyer, receiving her Master of Arts’ degree in 2015. Currently, she is taking the Master’s programme “time-based media” with Michaela Melián at HFBK Hamburg.
Christiana Teufel (1985) studied new media art at HfG Karlsruhe, specialising in artistic photography with Elger Esser and continued her studies at Merz Akademie Stuttgart. She earned her Master’s degree from Merz Akademie with David Quigley and Michael Dreyer. In her artistic explorations, she uses methods of archiving, of montage and abstraction as well as poetry to investigate cultural techniques such as collective memory.
Damaris Wurster (1984) graduated from Merz Akademie in 2013, receiving a bachelor’s degree in the field of film and video. Since then she has been continuing her studies at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart with Christian Jankowski, Mike Bouchet and since 2015 with Mariella Mosler. In her work, Damaris Wurster deals with the abstraction of photography, while assigning an important role to the supporting material.
