Dagmar Schürrer is an Austrian new media artist based in Berlin, Germany. She holds a degree in Fine Art from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London, UK. In her artistic practice she assembles digitally generated objects and animations, text, and soun d to form intricate video sound montages, evocative of painting, collage, or poetry.

Her work has been exhibited internationally, amongst others at the New Contemporaries at the ICA London, the Moscow Biennale for Young Art, the Centre Pompidou Paris, Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, Louvre Auditorium Paris, Transmediale Vorspiel in Berlin and the Museum of Waste in Changsha, China.
Her animations have been screened at numerous festivals, amongst others at SUPERNOVA in Denver, the Seattle Film Festival, the Athens Digital Arts Festival, the Horn Experimental Film Festival in Israel, Tricky Women Festival in Vienna, Vienna Shorts, Best Austrian Animation Festival, or the Diagonale Film Festival in Graz. In recent years she received the Goldrausch Scholarship of the Senate of Berlin and was shortlisted for the Berlin Art Prize and the Tenderpixel Award in London.
She is a project assistant at the research group INKA at the University for Applied Sciences Berlin, within which she explores AR technologies and supports the production of AR applications in the field of art and culture.
As a board member of the Berlin media art association (medienkunstverein), she is committed to supporting new forms of presentation of contemporary new media art.
