Angela Anderson is an artist and filmmaker working on research-based projects at the intersection of the fields of ecology, economics, migration, media and feminist & queer theory.
Since 2013 Anderson has been working together with artist Angela Melitopoulos and anti-mining activists in Northeastern Greece, producing two films and a radio project in the context of the struggle against the construction of the Skouries open pit gold mine. She is the exhibition designer for Forum Expanded at the Berlin International Film Festival and has a great interest in the potential of audio-visual media to open up new lines of flight. In 2016, Angela Anderson was a participating artist in the Framer Framed exhibition Voices Outside the Echo Chamber: Questioning Myths, Facts and Framings of Migration, curated by Katayoun Arian. She also participated in the public program dialogue Questioning representations of migration in artistic practice on 1 June 2016 to accompany the exhibition.
