Camille Auer is an anarchist trans dyke bitch artist, writer and performer. She works with sound, words, digital image and direct action. Her subject matter is the friction and diffraction that takes place in and between micro and macro realities, subject and object formation, matter and meaning, and marginalised individuals in an oppressive society. Camille Auer has published several articles in various media in finnish, english and swedish. She plays the guitar in the transcore queer edge band Raivoraittius and makes solo noise performances. She gives lectures on gender and experimental art and loves dogs and licorice ice cream. Currently supported by The Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
