biography

Susanne Kutter was born in Wernigerode in what was then East Germany in 1971. In 1982, she fled to West Germany with her family. She took German studies at the University of Münster and studied sculpture and video under Paul Isenrath and Guillaume Bijl at Münster University of Fine Arts. The University of Fine Arts awarded her the Förderpreis, a prize for the most promising young artists, during her studies. She also received a stipend from the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia to reside at the Cité des Arts in Paris, as well as spending several months in New York and California on a German Academic Exchange (DAAD) study programme. She was awarded an MA with distinction at the Münster University of Fine Arts in 2000.

Susanne Kutter works across a variety of different media and formats, including installation, performance, sculpture, photography and video. Her work is often concerned with the catastrophic relationship between nature and culture and the loss of safety and intimacy in everyday life. Within this context she reflects on the changing role of women in western societies during the last few decades and the increasing disappearance of the middle classes, traditionally associated with educational and cultural values. Susanne Kutter has twice received funding from the Film - und Medienstiftung NRW, a foundation to promote film and media, for her video works Flooded Home and Die Zuckerdose (The Sugar Bowl) and in 2017 she was awarded a working stipend by the Stiftung Kunstfonds in Bonn, a state-funded organization to promote artists based in Germany. She has taught at the University of the Arts in Berlin (UdK), Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) and at Bauhaus University in Weimar. She has lived with her family in Berlin since 2002.
