Nadja Buttendorf (1984) is a transdisciplinary visual artist based in Berlin. She is a trained goldsmith and studied fine arts at the Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle (Saale).

Buttendorf's works and workshops have been shown at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund; Künstlerhaus Bremen; LaGaîtéLyrique, Paris; MU, Eindhoven; NRW-Forum, Düsseldorf; Halle 14 - Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig; D21, Leipzig;, Berlin.

She has also given lecture performances at Re:publica, the CCC, Creamcake and the nGbK Berlin.

Nadja Buttendorf questions current norms and codes of gender constructions and value creation mechanisms of the human body in our digital society. Her works make it clear that our understanding of technology is also linked to patriarchal power relations. Her interactive works and video projects, on the other hand, draw multi-layered new narratives in which women become visible again as an elementary part of the history of technology. She extracts communicative moments of participation in the Internet both in her performative jewelry objects and in her tutorial workshops. DIY, as a widespread online aesthetic, is used specifically as a strategy of access and rejection of neoliberal work ethics. (2020)
