Antonia Baehr is a choreographer and a filmmaker. Her works explore the fiction of the everyday and of the theatre, among other themes. She works together with various partners, frequently in the form of switching roles: from project to project, each artist alternately takes on the role of either guest or host. Baehr studied film and media arts at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin, with Valie Export (1996) and received her Master’s at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with Lin Hixson. Since 2006, she has taught as guest professor at several European colleges.
