Barbara Visser

Barbara Visser (The Netherlands) is a Dutch conceptual and visual artist. She studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, Cooper Union University in New York and de Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht.

Visser has exhibited her work in various locations across the world, including Amsterdam, Paris and Venice.

Her pieces are multi-disciplinary, ranging from performance and photography to collages and video. Through art, Visser explores the boundaries of polar opposite themes, such as ideal and reality, original and copy. She continually asks herself in what ways history and memory are shaped by ourselves and by society.
