Rosalie Schweiker is a conceptual artist who uses social exchanges such as conversations, economic transactions and jokes to find new functions for art in society.
Inherent in the work is a playful humour that makes knowable the unwritten rules by which social systems operate. Since Rosalie’s focus is on the communicative effects of art, most of her work leaves hardly any material trace.
Rosalie teaches at art colleges in the UK and abroad, often in collaboration with San Keller (e.g. The Spiral Workshop 2013). She also publishes readers and essays together with Maria Guggenbichler (Clever Men’s Art 2013, Dilemmas in Art 2014).
