Annie Abrahams. Allergic To Utopias

Annie Abrahams, born in the Netherlands, has been based in France since 1985. She holds a doctorate in biology from the University of Utrecht and is a graduate in fine arts from the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten, Arnhem. Abrahams’s work most often employs networking technologies: she produces networked performances, pieces, collective writing projects, videos, as well as installations and performances in physical space. She started using technology for her artistic practice around 1991, and her first telepresence piece took place in 1996, in a gallery in Nijmegen, Holland.
