Bernadette Keating

Born 1976 (Dublin)

Bernadette Keating (b. Dublin 1976, lives in Leipzig) is a visual artist working with photography, video, and text. Her work explores notions of space, place and belonging in urban spaces and border territories, and the sociopolitical forces that shape them. From 2015 to 2018 she completed a postgraduate study in Photography and Media, as Master Student of Prof. Joachim Brohm, at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. She holds an MA in Documentary Photography from London College of Communication / University of the Arts London, and a BA in European Studies from the University of Limerick.

Her work has been exhibited in various group shows throughout Ireland and the UK. ’30 Irish Landscapes’, her latest body of work realized in book form, is shortlisted for the 2014 Unseen Dummy Award. Her photographic series ‘Líne’ was recently selected for a group exhibition on contemporary photographic art from the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. ‘Sitting on the edge’, a two-channel video and sound installation, will be shown later in the year at the Museum of Contemporary Art Magdeburg, in an exhibition celebrating 100 years of Bauhaus.1
