Madeleine Brunnmeier

Madeleine Brunnmeier (1995) is an artist based in Berlin, Germany. With a background in Visual Communication from Berlin University of the Arts (2017-2023) and Musashino Art University Tokyo (2022), her work spans various mediums including photography, video, printmaking, and installation. Her artistic practice is characterized by curiosity, keen attention to detail, and occasionally a subtle sense of humor. Exploring the nuanced relationships between individuals and their environment, both observationally and conceptually, she seamlessly navigates between fictional narratives and research-driven approaches. Utilizing everyday objects and materials such as wood, clothes, bread, and even her own body, her work blurs the lines between the ordinary and the extraordinary. By transforming these familiar elements into evocative symbols, she invites viewers to reconsider their relationship with the world around them and to explore the hidden narratives embedded within the fabric of everyday life.

Madeleine’s artistic journey has allowed her to showcase her work internationally. Notable highlights include being recognised as a runner-up in the MATERIALS MATTER: Textile Exchange x Magnum contest (2023) and the UP23 Photography contest, as well as receiving the silver award at DEUTSCHER FOTOBUCHPREIS (2023) for her graduation work ‘Gestalten’. Madeleine currently lives and works as a freelance artist in Berlin.
