Karin Schneider, Critic
Karin Schneider is a Brazil-born and New York-based artist, and filmmaker. In 1997, Schneider co-founded Union Gaucha Productions (UGP) an artist-run, experimental film company designed to carry out interdisciplinary collaborations with practitioners from different fields. From 2005 to 2008, she was a founding member of Orchard, a cooperatively organized exhibition and social space in New York’s Lower East Side. From 2010 to 2014, Schneider co-founded Cage, a space that facilitated new kinds of social interactions. Her current body of work, Situational Diagram, was the subject of a book and an exhibition at Dominique Lévy Gallery in 2016. Schneider’s diagrams explore the space of the exhibition reimagining it as a choreographical experience.
