Art Talks: Susanne M. Winterling
• Mittwoch 22. November 2017, 17:30, Ateliergebäude, A 0.11 (Doppeldeckraum)
Susanne M. Winterling was born in Rehau, Germany, where she still lives. She works across a range of media to explore the sentient economy, digital cultures, and the social life of materials across our built environment. Winterling’s practice reflects upon political as well as aesthetic entanglement among human/animal species and the elements in today’s challenging geopolitical context. She also remains focused on historical feminist practices and the commons and highlights different ways of knowledge through embodiment. Winterling is known for her time-based installations critically engaging the representation of reality. Prevailing modernist concepts, power structures, and hierarchical historiographies are captured and investigated in her work in the form of spatial constellations. With an emphasis on enhancing our perceptual and critical consciousness, Winterling undertakes affective and material-based research that highlights the subjective interaction between producers, viewers, materials and species in our ecology. Winterling is a professor of contemporary art at the University of Art and Design in Offenbach am Mein. Recent exhibitions and projects include “Myths of the Marble,” HOK Oslo and ICA Philadelphia; “An Inventory of Shimmers” at MIT List, Cambridge, MA; Contour Biennale 2017.
