Multimedia artist, humanist, and philanthropist – Annina Roescheisen’s creations thrive on her many passions. But above all she firmly believes that art should be for everybody and can ultimately be used to promote a humanitarian agenda. In 2016, Time Out New York named her as one of the top 10 emerging artists to follow.

Since the end of 2016, Annina has been working on the ongoing project #WhatBringsPeace.  Learn more about what drives the artist in this video:

Half German, half Slovenian, and raised in Munich, Annina Roescheisen received a master's degree in art history, philosophy, and folklore followed by working for Sotheby’s before she launched her own art career. Her work ranges from video to sculpture to performance and always examines human emotions. It was exhibited in galleries around the globe, including the 56th Venice Biennale. In the context of Annina’s social and philanthropic engagements, she collaborates with institutions such as the United Nations Foundation. 

She participated in the BMW Foundation Global Table in Bogota earlier this year and will show part of her project #WhatBringsPeace at the Berlin Global Forum in November.
