Sandra Mann is one of the most renowned artists and photographers of Germany. In her cross-genre oeuvre – she employs a wide range of artistic forms of expression such as photography, installations, sculpture, and video – she conceptually addresses the relationship between people themselves and between people and nature, the environment, the animal world, and gender.

Her work and teaching is defined by an exploration of the fundamentals of photography, imagery, and image perception. She also curates exhibitions in and outside Germany. She is a member of the international curator network Qipo and works as a jury member for photography and art competitions. Alongside various other prizes she got scholarships such as the Stipendium der Universitätsstiftung Augsburg, the Stipendium der Deutschen Künstlerhilfe, the Helsinki-Reisestipendium des Kulturamt and the Goetheplakette of the city of Frankfurt am Main.

She was 2016/17 Artistic Ambassador of Stiftung Palmengarten und Botanischer Garten and since 2017 she is Artistic Ambassador of the Keep The World Foundation.

Her works are represented in national and international collections, including Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt am Main, MUCA in Mexico City, Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna, Vehbi Koç Foundation in Istanbul, and the Art Collection Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation.
