Theresa Schubert

artist

Theresa Schubert is an artist and researcher in the intersection of art and science –– a slime mold enthusiast and self-thought mycologist from Berlin. She researches the role of creativity and collaboration from a posthuman perspective. Her work combines audiovisual and hybrid media to conceptual and immersive installations or works on paper whereas she treats nature's phenomena not only as inspiration but as a material and critical process. By means of transdisciplinary methods, such as the re-enactment of scientific experiments, biohacking, theoretical analysis and collaborative practices, her works deal with themes of self-organization, interspecies communication and morphology of forms. Theresa Schubert's work has been exhibited internationally. Venues include; Ars Electronica, Linz, Art Laboratory Berlin, KW Institute for Contemporary Art Berlin, Electro Fringe Festival Australia, Istanbul Biennial, and European Media Art Festival. Recently, the journals “Antennae”, "Wired" and "Art in Berlin" have reported on her work. In 2015 she published the book “Experiencing the Unconventional. Science in Art”. Her work “Growing Geometries” received the NTAA – New Technological Art Award 2016.
