Katharina Merten aka Dorothy Parker studied fine arts in Leipzig and Vienna. She has realized a dizzying array of projects and flavorful collaborations with a host of interdisciplinary artists. Defying traditional form or description, her work is experienced in a range of settings from the art and literature houses to the theater and club scene. Merten's audio/visual pieces have been seen and heard at: Chaos Communication Congress, Dokfest Kassel, Hessischer Literaturverein im Mousonturm Frankfurt, Institut für Zukunft, International Women's Film Festival Dortmund/Cologne, KV Kunstverein Leipzig, Nachtdigital and Skulptur Projekte Münster.
Since 2015 she has been a permanent member of the Schauspiel Leipzig ensemble as a camera woman and video artist. Katharina Merten has been working on several productions by in-house director Claudia Bauer ("89/90", "geister sind auch nur menschen", "König Ubu/ Ubus Prozess", "Metropolis"), Mirja Biel's "die hockenden" and "Wolfserwartungsland" by Gordon Kämmerer.
