Charlotte Arnhold (b. 1984 in Hamburg, German), lives and works in Glasgow, UK. Arnhold works with performance, sculpture, video and music. A central element of her practice is playing with identity and the deconstruction of gender ideology.
Creating surreal, dream-like aesthetics, blurring the lines between reality and imagination, she opens space for the doubt and confusion of existing social beliefs and practices.

Girlz Club is a an aggressively feminine environment, created in 2015 in Hamburg by artist and musician Charlotte Arnhold. The gallery space will function as a utopian realm and an alternative reality where power lies within transformation, and where identities and aesthetics become fluid. For Glasgow International 2018, Arnhold has invited Erica Eyres, Urara Tsuchiya and Ellis Luxemburg to join her in producing an exhibition and series of events under the title Girlz Club 2018.
