Suzanne Treister (UK)

Suzanne Treister (* 1958) lives and works in London. She is considered a pioneer in the field of digital and new media art and has been developing fictional worlds and organizations since the early 1990s. Her projects often span several years and comprise fantastic reinterpretations of given taxonomies and histories that examine the existence of covert, unseen forces at work in the world. An ongoing focus of her work is the relationship between new technologies, society, alternative belief systems and the potential futures of humanity. Her works can be found in collections such as Tate Britain, Science Museum London or Centre Pompidou in Paris.
