Maja Renn is a visual and performance artist based in Zürich, Switzerland. In her modular pieces composed of movement, poetry and video, she draws from the practice of collective, embodied dreaming to set up utopian models for a symbiotic coexistence between diverse forms of life.

Born in 1990 in Wrocław (PL), Maja Renn completed in 2013 the Informal Master Program at the Center of Contemporary Art in Tbilisi (GE) and obtained in 2016 her MA in Art Praxis at the Dutch Art Institute (NL). In 2014 she established an independent artist residence De Liceiras 18 in Porto (PT). In 2016 she settled in Zurich (CH) where she worked, among others, as a research assistant at the Institute for Art Education at the Zurich Academy of the Arts (2016 - 2019) and as assistant director at the Schauspielhaus (2019 - 2021) and participated in Professional Training in Contemporary Dance and Ballet at the Tanzhaus (2016 - today).

Her work has so far been performed and exhibited, among others, at the Galeria Ul in Gdańsk (PL), Šopa Gallery in Košice (SK), Casa do Povo in São Paulo (BR), Showroom in Arnheim (NL), Villa Arson in Nice (FR) and Spazju Kreattiv in Valletta (MT).
