Arite Löcher first studied German language and literature at the University of Leipzig and then took a bachelor’s degree in communication design with a focus on illustration at the Burg Giebichenstein Academy of Art in Halle. The formative theme of her years of study was the exploration of language, design and imaginary spaces in the form of literature, illustration, design and their interfaces. Over time, her work increasingly shifted from illustration to the three-dimensionality of spatial design.
For many years she has been involved in various independent cultural projects in an organizational, design and curatorial capacity. In the process, she has been able to gain experience in set design, stage design for festivals, content curation and project coordination, among other things, and has learned to appreciate collective work.
During her stage design internship at the Schauspiel Leipzig for the play “Der Besuch der alten Dame”, her fascination for theater stage design was confirmed. She is particularly attracted to stage design as an aesthetic space that comes to life situationally and through its performance.
