Alex Bodea works at the crossroads of visual art and journalism. Fuelled by a desire to witness and record, she makes use of a language based on drawing and text, both of them stripped down to essential. She is mostly interested in documenting aspects of urbanity such as everyday street life, social interactions and "the making-of" involving theatre and visual arts productions. The technician's hard work, the organizer's complex efforts, artists' rehearsals and developing processes, all follows in detail all of these. Alex Bodea has collaborated with and made visual reports about institutions such as Serralves Foundation (Porto), Institute for Cultural Inquiry, Martin-Gropius-Bau, HAU, Berliner Festspiele (Berlin), Deutsche Oper (Berlin) and she has documented moments in the professional life of artists/actors/writers/directors such as Benjamin Verdonck, Salomé Lamas, Ana Moreira, Karl Ove Knausgård (work-in-progress) and opera director Peter Sellars. She lives and works in Berlin.
