Anastasia Klose
Anastasia Klose is a video, performance and installation artist with a background in Philosophy and English.

Her works draws from immediately-available sources, whether ordinary experiences - such as boredom, loneliness or unrequited love - or inexpensive resources such as a cheap camera, editing software and popular songs. This approach aligns Klose's work with the culture of self-exposure that has emerged through reality television and internet sites such as YouTube.
