Magdalena is a frequent winner of work grants as well as an exhibitor in domestic and international art fairs. Her work has been seen in China, Germany, France, Italy, UK, and Israel, with solo shows in Leipzig, Jena, Halle, and Berlin. With her Jena-based gallery, she regularly travels to symposia throughout Europe.
Since graduating magna cum laude in 2014, she has deepened her practice and continued to challenge herself by extending the technical vocabulary of her work through intangibles, such as her own cultural philosophy and social justice work, or the distinctly tangible textile interventions used to extend and expand the notion of what a canvas is.
Born 1987 in East Germany, Magdalena went to her first political protests at the age of only 2 years old. This event prefigured the kind of adult Magdalena would grow to be, and the kind of work she would do. Magdalena’s work as an artist revolves around the notion of epistemic injustice within the postmodern multitude of narratives, mirrored in the multiple levels of the abstraction/ figuration spectrum in her work.
