Angela Wittwer (*1987) works in art, education and graphic design. For cultural and educational institutions and practitioners she crafts concepts and texts, edits publications, coordinates interdisciplinary projects, and designs printed matter as well as digital content. In her text- and research-based artistic practice she collaborates with other artists and works in varying media, such as sound, drawing and installation. Currently, she reflects on postcolonial entanglements, (her)stories, and fluid subjectivities. She is based between Jakarta and Zurich.
