Stine Hertel, artist

Stine Hertel is a performance artist, light designer and technician based in Düsseldorf and Frankfurt. She runs the department of Special Defects, which explores the performativity of materials and surfaces and builds rogue stage installations. Together with Jan Rohwedder, she founded the performance platform Rotterdam Presenta, which is an interdisciplinary artists community working on formats between performance, installation and concert, between happening and contemplation. In 2017, Stine founded the “Theatre of the Long Now”, a 100-year long performance on a piece of wasteland in Stuttgart, in collaboration with Alice Ferl and Bureau Baubotanik. Her work focuses on the confrontation of human and other bodies and on the power relations between them. In 2018, Stine was awarded the Emerging Performance Artists’ Award of Düsseldorf/NRW.
