Anna-Stina Treumund (b.1982, Estonia)
She received her MFA from the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2010. Anna-Stina uses photography and video as medium for giving visibility to lesbian and queer women. She is one of the first artists in Estonia who is a self-identified lesbian and has explicated the role and position of this marginal group in Estonian society through her work. In her most significant personal exhibition “Me, You and Everybody We Do Not Know” (2010) she deconstructed stereotypical images of a lesbian women and gave society some ideas about how to see the world from her viewpoint.
Her last project “Loser 2011” criticised the present situation in neoliberal Estonia where the “winner” is white heterosexual businessman with racist views.
Anna-Stinas next exhibition is about missing lesbian herstory.
