Jennifer Merlyn Scherler (*1996, Oberdiessbach) approaches her topics of research through different media, ranging from photography, video and sound to text and performance. She is deeply interested in the ways internet spaces reflect structures of dominance in our culture and the strategies that are therefore constructed by marginalized groups to find ways to survive and instrumentalize the digital sphere. Though her work is not exclusively internet based, it always tries to trace the reasons for cultural habits and strategies of living, grieving and remembering. Scherler also tries to question the (rather new) distinction between art and education and sees education as part of her art practice as well - both by accompanying bodies of work by more elaborate lecture performances and by teaching as a part of the memeclassworldwide.
