Oliver Dougherty is a Berlin-based Australian curator and artist whose work builds from the idea that human and non-human life are composed in a collaborative ecosystem. From this assumption, Dougherty’s curatorial work moves between the realms of landscape and urban space, the local and the global, contemplating the precarious position of humanity on the planet. With queer-feminist ideas and methods at hand, questions of sexuality and gender, and particularly their interaction with both the virtual and ecological, are also central to the curator/artist’s practice. Dougherty’s artistic work spans between photography, digital arts, text, performance and dialogue-based art.
Currently pursuing an MA in Spatial Strategies from Weissensee Academy of Arts Berlin, Dougherty also holds a BA in Sociology & Cultural Studies from Maastricht University, the Netherlands.
Keep an eye out for the upcoming group exhibition Futureless, which Dougherty is curating at SomoS Art House Berlin and whose dates are TBC after shutdown.
