LOOPS SESSIONS: Agnes Meyer-Brandis – Veranstaltungsreihe
LOOPS is an event series that explores current questions facing our society at the intersection of art, science and technology in a unique discursive format. Afterwards, the Bar provides a space for exchange between guests, researchers, students and the public. The accompanying LOOPS SESSIONS extend the series with different formats such as workshops, performances and experimental formats.
For this LOOPS SESSION, we are joined by Agnes Meyer-Brandis, a Berlin based artist with a background in sculpture and new media, who will introduce us to her practice. She creates works on the fringes of science, fiction and fabulation. Educated first in mineralogy, followed by studies at the art academies in Maastricht, Düsseldorf and Cologne, she has founded the Research Raft, a fictitious Institute for Art & Subjective Science that purposefully ‘is asking questions but gives no answers’ in fields such as climate research, environmental studies, meteorology, as well as synthetic and artistic biology.
Meyer-Brandis’ work has been exhibited worldwide and awarded with many prizes, including two Prix Ars Electronica Awards of Distinction & the European Kairos prize.
The event takes place in our studio and is open to all. A livestream will be available.
