Theresa Schubert is a Berlin-based artist exploring unconventional visions of nature, technology and the self. Her research focuses on the role of creativity and collaboration from a posthuman perspective and her work combines audiovisual and hybrid media, conceptual and immersive installations or performances. That includes organic matter and living organisms, algorithms and artificial intelligence which become part of the artwork, and are not just considered material but rather meaningful co-creators. Her works question the relation of humans with their environment and the evolvement of matter and meaning beyond the Anthropos.
She recently started working with UHD (Ultra High Definition) video environments and 3D Laser Scanning, which she employs to challenge modes of perception and question the human-machine relationship in hypertech/Cyborg societies. Currently, she is experimenting with and pondering on future implications coming from newest developments in biotechnology and artificial intelligence. In her practice, art is not only a reflection of reality but a possible reality itself.
She holds a PhD in Media Art from Bauhaus-University Weimar and her work has been exhibited internationally: Ars Electronica, Linz, Art Laboratory Berlin, KW Institute for Contemporary Art Berlin, Newcastle Region Art Gallery, Electro Fringe Festival Australia, Futurium Berlin, Instanbul Biennial, European Media Art Festival, Kapelica Gallery, Museum villa Rot, MMOMA Moscow, Museum of Contemporary Art Perm, Zebrastraat Gent. She is the co-publisher of “Experiencing the Unconventional. Science in Art”, and curated “Stories for a more-than-human world” (2018) and inoculum (2016).
