Lena Heubusch


Lena Heubusch studied in Spain, Germany, and the UK and holds an MA in Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London as well as master degrees in graphic and web design. She investigates social environments through collaborative settings – online, offline and everywhere in between – within the format of workshops and talks, most recently at Goethe Institute Max Mueller Bhavan in Bangalore India and The Graduate Center at City University of New York.

Her work addresses the exploration of collective dynamics that investigate quantum interconnections between the material, the intuitive and the sensitive. Heubusch explores the hybridisation between performance, sculpture, video and sound as means to question the traditional category of image. She performed for Otobong Nkanga’s ‘Carved to Flow’ during Documenta 14 in Kassel, Germany.

Selected exhibitions include among others: Goethe Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan (Bangalore), Melbourne Design Week (Australia), Bétonsalon (Paris), Friche La Belle de Mai (Marseille), The Graduate Center CUNY (NYC), Medialab Prado/Matadero (Madrid), Sluice Biennal (London), Wandsworth Arts Fringe (London), The Crossing (London), The Window Galleries (London), Doomed Gallery (London), Spazju Kreattiv (Malta), CAC (Málaga) and Martch Gallery (Istanbul).

In her artistic practice, she questions the importance of metals like copper in the context of technological progress, as well as its physicality and the fact that it is a finite resource.


Lena does her residency at Can Serrat during May-June 2024.
