Claude Schötz

Claude Schötz is an artist who creates books, films, sculptures, bacteria, algae, fungi, foods, and menus within different collectives—­and frequently works with the scriptorium The Category and the Berlin label a.ACHAT. She works in a kitchen-studio-laboratory, where she experiments with bio materials and ponders about a series of performances that could excavate gold from sewage sludge to help finance the clean-up of the Pacific Ocean. She was an assistant professor at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts and won the Marion Ermer Award in 2011. Together with Hannes Bröcker, Marian Kaiser, and Jonas Loh, she founded the collective MEHL in 2018.
