Mika Schwarz received her diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig in 2016 with Prof. Peter Piller and her Meisterschülerinnen degree in 2019 with Prof. Heidi Specker. She completed one semester of visual arts each at the Accademia di Belle Arti Napoli and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

In her artistic practice, she combines photographs, text, objects and videos to form autonomous systems and fictitious surveying techniques within her spacial installations. She examines artifacts of everyday life and its associated objects and commodities for their social relationships, accompanied by research into sub-areas of archeology and media theory. Schwarz is aiming to explore and enhance forms of dialogue between individuals als well as forms of orienting within, coping with and transforming preexisting systems.

 

In 2020 she received a stipend for visual artists by Kunstfonds Bonn (Neustart) and in 2021 stipends by VG Bild-Kunst (Neustart) and Berliner Senat. Currently she holds a visiting lecturer position for visual arts at TU Berlin. Shows include Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst (GfZK) Leipzig, Goethe Institut Paris and the Art Future Biennale Riga.
