Evy Schubert, born in 1981 in Bremen, Germany, living and working in Berlin, got educated as a photographer at ‘Spéos Photographic Institute’, Paris, and as a director at the theatre ‘Volksbuehne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz’, Berlin. Furthermore she holds an academic degree in social sciences and communication science (BA, University of Erfurt) as well as theatre science (MA, Freie Universitaet Berlin). Her work can be understood as a symbiosis of these fields in order to discover a sociological, political and/ or cultural phenomenon leading to an artistic result varying from video performance to still photography. 
Currently Evy Schubert is working on a triptych of video performances that deal with the perception of time. In the first work of this circle “Ich warte nicht auf dich mit diesem Tag” (“I am not waiting for you with this day”) four elderly people demonstrate and reflect the stillness and usefulness of time and waiting at the in-between of life and death. This video performance is currently being post-produced. The second filmic work will be a direct answer to “Ich warte nicht auf dich mit diesem Tag” and was realized throughout an artistic residency at GeoAIR in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Evy Schubert hosted a screening of contemporary video performance and video art from Germany. The screening focussed on performance of the self in a social and or political context. Works by artists such as Bjoern Melhus, Herbert Fritsch, Shahram Entekhabi and Evy Schubert were presented and discussed.
