with Mira Hirtz - Co-Curator Critical Zones. In Search of a Common Ground

For a long time the reactions of Earth to our human actions remained unnoticed, and have now finally - not least due to recent international climate protests - moved into public consciousness. The exhibition project invites visitors to engage with the current situation of the Earth in novel and diverse ways, and to explore new modes of co-existence, as terrestrial beings, between all forms of life. 

Join co-curator, Mira Hirtz from the ZKM for a special curatorial walkthrough on November 2, 6 pm in our gallery.

Mira Hirtz is a performance artist, art mediator, and art theorist basing her work on somatic practices. She explores the value of creativity for human beings and non-human beings in many different formats such as workshops, performances, video pieces, and texts. She graduated from the MFA Creative Practice at TL Conservatoire London and from the MA art research at University of Art and Design Karlsruhe where she thought performative research practice. She worked as an art mediator at documenta14, co-curated the program series “How do we care?” at Badischer Kunstverein 2020, is part of the collective ANTHROPOS EX researching about the theatre of the Anthropocene and currently the co-project manager and co-curator of the touring exhibition “Critical Zones”, initiated by the ZKM | Karlsruhe, the Goethe-Institut South Asia, and Bruno Latour.
