Transversal skills: Tess Marschner

Friday, January 12 @ 10:00 am11:00 am

Posthuman, queer and animate perspectives on (Techno)Sciences

I will introduce my previous artistic work and share the current state of my project at Ibec. It would be magnificent if my presentation leads to further thoughts and collaborations that are of interest to my project.

I will focus on my installation work ANIMAL REMINDER in terms of intertwining artistic and scientific knowledge production. The philosopher Martha C. Nussbaum describes animal reminders as parts or aspects of the human body that evoke a strong aversion or even disgust: Blood, saliva, urine, sweat, amniotic fluid, pus, breast milk, faeces, ejaculate. Body surfaces of living beings are perforated several times, ANIMAL REMINDER emerge from pores and body orifices, interfaces of skins and mucous membranes at the boundary to air, water and earth. ANIMAL REMINDER are reminiscent of the process of decomposition, of slimy animals, the uncontrollable loss of bodily fluids. They remind us that we ourselves are mortal and animal beings.

In case you are heavily interested in my work but unable to attend, feel free to write me a pm and we can figure out a personal meeting.
