Reframing Mentorship Among Colleagues

Mueller's photographs are visual records of encounters with people and environments that engage both familiar and foreign realms. Her narratives of everyday lives explore individual and collective identities using social context and landscape to investigate these identities in relation to cultural and political realities. A second major theme is her return to her homeland of Thuringia and the emigrant experience of Heimat as otherness. Her work has been included in exhibitions at Le Lieu Unique/ National Center for Contemporary Arts, Nantes, France, Rick Wester Fine Art, New York, the Chase Center at RISD Museum of Art, Bakalar Gallery, Massachusetts College of Art + Design, St. Botolph Club, Boston, Danforth Art Museum, and Black Cloud Gallery, Chicago. She is the author of May Days, published by Fraction Editions in 2018.
Mueller was born and raised in Thuringia, East Germany until the fall of the Berlin Wall. She received her MFA in Photography from the Massachusetts College of Art + Design.
She is currently an Assistant Teaching Professor at Northeastern University College of Art, Media + Design and previously taught in the photography programs at Massachusetts College of Art + Design and Lesley Art + Design.
