Luísa Telles (*1991, Brasil) is a visual artist and researcher working with audiovisual media and photography. The focus of her works is on how images and situations are produced and experienced in the digital age, in the postcolonial debates around arquives, and in feminist readings on art history. In this flux of data in which both images and their significances travel, nomadic pictures and objects are exhibited in time-based works and site specific installations. 
In 2020 she exhibited at Egeu (PT) and Hinterconti (DE); as well as curated a group show with Latin American artists based in Hamburg at Raum linksrechts (DE). Telles recently exhibited in Germany at House of Photography | Deichtorhallen Museum, Mom Art Space and was published in Camera Austria Magazine in 2018. Telles also teaches Art Criticism and Modern Art History as a tutor for Dr. Astrid Mania in Hfbk Hamburg, and researches material for the daily podcast An Artwork a Day.

With a DAAD Grant for 2019/21, she is studying Photography under Profs. Broomberg&Chanarin at the Hochschule für Bildende Künst Hamburg. Telles also holds a Master's degree in Multimedia Art from the University of Lisbon (2018) and a Psychology degree from Puc São Paulo (2015). Currently lives and works in Germany.
