Ingrid Bachmann studied at York University in Toronto (1987-1990) and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, receiving an MA in Modern Art History, Theory and Criticism (1996-1998). As well as teaching at the University of Michigan and at Concordia University, she is an artist, author and exhibition curator. Over the years, she has developed an impressive body of complex and sophisticated works that range from installations and interactive performances to suitcase sculptures that one opens to discover a narrative concerning the sublime. She has also designed works for the Web such as Science Fair: Feminist Interventions in Cyberspace – Studio XX, Montreal (2002, www.studioxx.org/sciencefair) – and Istanbul Museum Web Biennial 2003 (www.digitalhermit.ca).
