Anna Jermolaewa (born 1970 in St. Petersburg) is a contemporary artist who has lived and worked in Vienna since 1989. At that time, Jermolaewa, a co-founder of the magazine Democratic Opposition, had to leave her hometown for political reasons. She received political asylum in Austria and studied at the Faculty of Art History of the University of Vienna, and then completed her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts. From 2005 to 2011 she was a professor at the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe (New Media Art). She also worked at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts Salzburg. In her mostly documentary video and photographic works, the artist reflects the everyday, supposedly stable dimensions of our reality.
