TALK: Woods and Words –by Theresa Schubert

16 July, 2021 7 pm

With her transdisciplinary works, artist Theresa Schubert manages to make the fine connective tissue between human / nature on the one hand and science / technology on the other visible and, above all, tangible. Often, organic materials such as slime moulds, fungi or bacteria are the starting point for an experimental exploration via practices of posthuman self-organisation or interspecies communication. In her lecture, she will present selected works from her bioart practice and her conceptual backgrounds.

Theresa Schubert is a Berlin-based artist and researcher exploring unconventional visions of nature, technology and the self. She holds a PhD in Media Art from Bauhaus-University Weimar about Agency in Biomedia Art. Her work has been exhibited internationally.
