Biography

Barbara VISSER (1966, the Netherlands) studied Photography and Audiovisual Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Cooper Union in New York and the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht and is an awarded artist. She has also worked as the artistic director of IDFA. Her work focuses on cultural and historical narratives and how these become manifest through art, design, media and science. By challenging conventions in storytelling and image-making, and questioning our memory- and belief systems, Visser aims to provoke a new perception of what a normality has rendered invisible. Her latest film, THE END OF FEAR, was selected at IFFR 2018.
