comparisons between fictional and real elements. Neckar Doll studied at the HEAR (Hautes Écoles des Arts du Rhin, Mulhouse, Fance) and graduated in 2019. Doll has been a resident at MOTOCO, France (2020-2022), participated in exhibitions such as Baitball 01 hosted by Like A Little Disaster, Exception of (not) being with Essenza Club and Rhizome Parking
