Vanessa Amoah Opoku


Berlin, Germany

Vanessa Amoah Opoku (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist working with history, technology and marginalised narratives within mixed realities. In her artistic practice, she reflects on how alliances between art, science and technology can change the perception of our world, reality and all living things. Her favourite media include 3D graphics, animation, sculpture, photogrammetry, sound and artificial intelligence.



Opoku is part of the artist collective PARA, which works in the field of interdisciplinary and site-specific installations and performing arts. Her works deal with themes such as chronopolitics, future heritage and speculative feelings. Since 2021, she has been one of the curators of the Balance Club Culture Festival, which explores the political significance of club culture in society, its role in different communities and its contribution to technological and cultural progress.
She studied Book Art and Graphic Design, Art and Digital Media and Photography at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem and completed her diploma studies in Fine Arts with Prof. Tina Bara at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig in September 2021.


She is a scholarship holder of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and winner of “gute aussichten – junge deutsche fotografie // new german photography 2021/2022.”
