Read a conversation with cultural studies scholar Myriam Naumann on my recent solo exhibition, “The Ethnic Chinese Millionaire,” in English and in German

“Der chinesischstämmige Millionär” (The Ethnic Chinese Millionaire) was shown at Maniére Noire in Berlin from September 8 to October 19, 2018 as part of the series “Appropriating Language.”


Andrea Scrima studied fine arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York and the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin, Germany, where she lives and works. Scrima has worked as a professional artist for many years, incorporating short fiction pieces into large-scale text installations. Scrima, who was awarded the Lingen Art Prize in 1996, has won numerous distinctions for her artistic work, including a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation (1990), grants from the Stiftung Kulturfonds (1997), the Council on Cultural Affairs (1995), and the Council on Science, Research, and the Arts (1999), both of the Berlin Senate. Scrima has taken part in residencies at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha; Schloß Salem (in the residency exchange Salem2Salem); and Ledig House / Art Omi, New York. Scrima has been represented in numerous exhibitions, including the Franklin Furnace, New York; the Contemporary Art Center, Moscow; Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen; American Academy in Rome; Museum für Neue Kunst, Freiburg; Kunst Haus Dresden; Museumsakademie Berlin; Neuer Berliner Kunstverein; The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha; and other institutions and commercial galleries internationally. Her artist’s book Panta Rhei is part of the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, and the Houghton Library at Harvard, among others.
