In 2018 her final year project received an appreciation award by the Art Prize of the Saalesparkasse Foundation for its special artistic quality.

In 2021 she will be showing her project ERRE at the Rencontres de la Photographie d'Arles at the Chapelle de la Charité in France.


Lisa Kohl intends to examine social conditions artistically and formulate them poetically through the media of video and object art as her own point of view; she creates images for that which drives her in realtime, a balancing act between political commitment and a personal visual language.
