Andrea Muendelein is researcher and a visual artist working with photography. She graduated with a PhD in Fine Art Photography from Central Saint Martins University of the Arts London in 2019. Her practice-based research examines how the notion of the stranger can be understood through photography, and how photography can be understood through the notion of stranger, challenging both conventional understandings of the stranger and the idea of photographic image as referential, punctual certainty.

Andrea has participated in artist residencies, symposia and conferences such as 'Cill Rialaig', Ireland, 'Nida Art Colony', Lithuania, 'Integrity & Ethics in Arts Research' at Chelsea College of Art and 'Light | Sensitive | Material' at the University of West London. Her work has been shown in exhibitions such as 'Re-Stage', Davies Street Gallery and 'Minor Revisions' at Tenderpixel Gallery in London. Forthcoming shows include Dimbola Museum, Isle of Wight and Expo '20 at the Institut d"Estudis Fotografics de Catalunya, Barcelona. She is an Associate Lecturer and a Student Mentor at the University of the Arts.
