    Janis Schroeder works as an artist, filmmaker and researcher, primarily using the media of video and photography. In his films and photo series, and as a member of two art research collectives, he explores ecological themes and questions of identity. After studying research-based art, he was employed for several years at the Geneva School of Art as a research associate. There, he was involved in the research project titled “The Anthropocene Atlas of Geneva,” among others. Most recently, as part of the Visual and Media Anthropology graduate program at Freie Universität Berlin, he worked on the film research project, ‘Zwischenraumerkundung,’ in which he artistically explores the notion of “post-migrant society.”
