In her practice, Esther Hovers (b. Amsterdam, 1991) investigates how power, politics and control are exercised through urban planning and the use of public space. She was trained as a photographer but creates installations in which photographs, drawings, text and film play an equal part. She is interested in finding poetic translations for power structures and technological developments.

Esther Hovers has exhibited at Aperture Foundation in New York City; Lianzhou Photo Festival in China; and Foam Photography Museum of Amsterdam, et al. Her work has been published in The New York Times; The Washington Post; M – Le Magazine du Monde and Wired, among other publications.

Hovers is currently an artist-in-residence at NARS Foundation (The New York Art Residency and Studios) in Brooklyn, New York.
