Julie Wagener is interested in how the individual of the 21rst century acquires notions of the self (Selbst-Verstandnis): the contextualisation of one’s existence, the building of identity and the forging of meaning. In this context it is feelings of loneliness, distress, abandonment and alienation towards contemporary society that represent the core subjects of the artist’s work.
