Bethan Hughes


Bethan Hughes studied Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art and Media Art at the Bauhaus-Universitity Weimar. In 2020, she received a PhD from the University of Leeds for her dissertation Against Immateriality: 3D CGI and Contemporary Art. Through installations that translate research into sculpture, moving-image, sound and text she explores how matter is transformed through industrial and digital processes and the broader political, social, sensual and immaterial dimensions of these shifts. Her work has most recently been shown in solo exhibitions at Centrum Berlin, HAUNT/frontviews Berlin and in the group exhibition Mutual Matters: Goldrausch 2021 at the Haubrok Foundation, Berlin. Between 2019-20, she was a Braunschweig Projects fellow. In 2021 she received a fine art research scholarship from the city of Berlin and in 2023, as part of European Media Art Platform programme, she will be in residence at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial.
