Ernst Fischer is a German born performance artist, whose practice explores gender identities and notions of ‘the uncanny’, extending beyond the staging of subversive acts to the construction and investigation of temporary and fluid communities. He wrote his PhD thesis on ‘the queer space of living-room theatre and domestic performance’ at Roehampton University (2004), where he was – from 2005 to 2017 – employed as Creative Research Fellow.

Ernst is a member of DARC (Documentation Action Research Collective), and artistic director of LEIBNIZ performance company as well as of D:NA (Dust: Narrative & Artefacts), a domestic performance space and archive, originally based in South London, but now focused on his new home in Folkestone.
