Cẩm-Anh Lương (she/they/Cẩm-Anh) is a Vietnamese new media artist and designer currently based in Berlin. Prior to moving to Germany in 2017 for educational purposes, she studied Law in Hanoi (VN), worked as a creative designer in Saigon (VN), and as a social worker in New Delhi and Vadodara (IN).

Cẩm-Anh's work revolves around personal narratives, migration, and the politics of memory, often using mixed media and VR to create immersive and interactive experiences that challenge viewers' perceptions of reality. She creates immersive installation that use experimental collective storytelling to investigate forgotten memories shaped by Western colonization, propaganda of the regimes, and stereotypes imposed on South East Asian bodies.

She has collaborated with collectives and initiatives such as neue nachbarschaft/Moabit, menseer_projekt (which she initiated), and *foundationClass*Collective to examine the intersection of new media art, technology, and social justice. In addition to her artistic practice, she works as an educator for outreach projects, advocating for alternative voices that empower marginalized communities.

Cẩm-Anh's work has been exhibitied in Berlin Biennale 10, feldfünf Projekträume Berlin, nGbK, Vorspiel Berlin, Carnival of Algorithmic Culture Toronto and documenta-fifteen.
