Our module VIBRANT MATTER produced the third event of our talk series HER WAYS AND MEANS – FEMALE PROTAGONISTS IN THE ARTS AND SCIENCE CONTEXTS in collaboration with Peer in London, presenting A K Dolven in conversation with Andrea Schlieker.
Artist A K Dolven has raised important questions in aesthetics, ethics, science, politics and society throughout her career. In this talk, she shared with us some insight of the projects echo echo and fishsongs fro the depth of the fjord at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Berlin in 2015, curated by Gaby Hartel. The acoustic interventions used the media of water and air and took place in two different rooms of the museum.
Andrea Schlieker lead a an engaging discussion, later on with the audience, about her collaborations with researchers at the museum in all their highs and lows, as well as reflect on the challenges of steering an interdisciplinary collaboration with its potential for both clashing and coinciding visions. Andrea Schlieker is currently Director of Commissions and Special Projects at White Cube, London.
