| 28 September 2019 (Day excursion)
Lab Besuch, TU Berlin | 1 October, 2019
Theresa Schubert offers diverse perspectives on the forest
and its cultural meaning. Together with biotechnologists from the
Institute for Biotechnology | TU Berlin she guids us through the
forest of Briesetal in search of tree mushrooms. This Walk and
Talk forms part of a research project combining cutting edge
biotechnological research, citizen science and artistic research..
Schmidt and Carsten Pohl from TU Berlin show participants
how to collect samples of fungi and preserve them for further study
and cultivation. At a follow-up lab at the Dept. of Applied and
Molecular Microbiology | TU Berlin on 1 October, participants are
shown how to inoculate Petri dishes with samples for cultivation.
Berlin-based artist Theresa Schubert explores unconventional visions
of nature, technology and the self. She studied media art at the
Bauhaus-University, Weimar. She combines audiovisual and hybrid
media with conceptual and immersive installations or site-specific
interventions that may include living organisms. Thematically her
works question the relation of humans to their environment and evolvement
of matter and meaning beyond the anthropos.
