Cana Bilir-Meier

Cana Bilir-Meier, living and working in Vienna and Istanbul. Studied Art Education and Art/Digital Media at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. Works with film, digital media, video and video installation. She writes texts in the art contexts and worked as a teacher in schools and as an assistance at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Currently she is a grantee of the austrian sholarship "kültür gemma!" which is a project to promote city culture in Vienna as well as migrant art and cultural production. Her artistic and political approach focuses on the tension between critical representations of migration, biography_ies, archives and politics of remembering. In her cinematic, artistic and text-based works she deliberately uses strategies of the fragmentary and the incomplete to reveal the construction_s of biography_ies and (hi)story_ies.
