About

Geertje Brandenburg (1998 NL) is een beeldend kunstenaar die fotografie, collage en installatie samenbrengt.
Sinds 2022 runt Geertje de kunstruimte de Ijskast in Rotterdam.

Throughout photography-based collages and installations, Geertje Brandenburg investigates the narrative power of images. Drawn from her extensive visual archive, Brandenburg presents photographs devoid of their original context. Playing with time and identity, she reshapes the idea of the singular self as she is interwoven with the stories of others. Fact and fiction oscillate in her visual and spatial collages, showing multifaceted versions of the real and the self.  


Brandenburg often draws inspiration from her family and questions the transference of identity throughout familial relationships.
