Doris Lasch

Exhibitions & Projects






Doris Lasch pursues research at the intersection of documentation and fiction, conceptuality and narration, taking an approach that is both critical and personal. In her photographs, objects, installations, and books, a network of relationships unfolds that questions the viewpoint, the visible, and the framework of a context. This always implies an exploration of occupied and unoccupied spaces, as well as the negotiation of possibilities inherent to the given situation.

Doris Lasch studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. From 1998 to 2011 she collaborated with the artist Ursula Ponn. Together they developed a visual language at the crossroads of cinema and photography and reflected on places of cultural production and representation. In 2001 they spent several months at Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart; in 2002 they traveled to Brussels on a DAAD annual fellowship; and from 2003 to 2004 they took up a two-year postgraduate research fellowship at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.

Doris Lasch lived in Brussels until 2008. She then settled in her present base, Basel. Her work was awarded the Swiss Art Award in 2010 and nominated for it in 2015. In 2011 she was a guest lecturer at the HKB Bern. In 2021 her work was awarded a recognition grant from the UBS Cultural Foundation.

Her work has been shown in group and solo shows, inter alia at Kunsthalle Basel, Kunsthaus Baselland, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Kunstverein Potsdam, Kunstraum München, Palais des Beaux-Arts Brussels and Établissement d’en face Brussels.
