Amanda Beech is an artist and writer. Her work collides narratives of power, cause and alienation from philosophical theory, literature and real political events, exploring how these accounts of human agency enforce and render our experience of reality. Artworks are “arguments” that prosecute another form of force that surpasses the notion that art simply reflects and reproduces the status quo. Amanda’s work has been exhibited internationally in Biennales and other arts projects. This includes, Covenant Transport Move or Die, solo exhibit, Baltic Contemporary, UK, 2018, Map of the Bomb, video work, Havana Biennale, 2022, Asymmetrical Equations, a book project for Manual for a Future Desert, 2022, and “Messages from the Inside”, an essay on Lyotard's Les Immateriaux, for the exhibition, Beyond Matter, ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany. Her new book The Intolerable Image, is forthcoming with MIT.
