Lisa Müller-Trede

is a performance artist and filmmaker, interested in the performative dimension of virtuality and the virtual in the live event. Her work focuses on the body in its live, recorded and augmented state. Often combining various media in live film shootings or performative exhibitions she explores the body’s physical limits. This is a core catalyst for her engagement with the body, the camera, the means of the editing room and devices and software allowing for augmented reality. In a recent long-term research she has juxtaposed physical and cinematographic techniques of cutting developing a cross-media performative practice.

Lisa received a BA in Communication Science at the University of Vienna, a BA in Drama at the Vienna Conservatory, and her MA in the program Solo/Dance/Authorship at the University of the Arts in Berlin. Currently she is an Annenberg Fellow and PhD candidate in Interdisciplinary Media Arts and Practice at USC School of Cinematic Arts, Los Angeles, and an artist in virtual residence at the Augmented Reality Creative Residency by dance-tech.

She performed and exhibited works at the Venice Biennale and at Tanz im August Berlin, at the Kunstverein Hamburg and the Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, the Independent Art Fair New York, at the Downey Mansion in Chicago, at Jonas Burgert’s NGORONGORO Artist Weekend in Berlin, the Performing Arts Festival Berlin, Uferstudios Berlin, and at the Frieze London, often collaborating with the artist John Bock.
