“Katrin Hornek’s work playfully engages with the strange paradoxes and convergences of living in the age of the Anthropocene, that is, the new geologic epoch where the effects of capitalism, colonialism, and extractivism are written into the body of the earth. Both her artistic and her curatorial practice assert an understanding of the entwinement of nature and culture, implicitly arguing for more complex formulations. To be made up of the Earth is not necessarily easy, as the body stones of LÍTHOS demonstrate. Or to try to encourage the remains of long dead organisms in a séance, now morphed into oil and plastic, to speak to us in our present. What can we learn from those dead voices? And what might they tell us?” — Heather Davis

Katrin Hornek will illustrate certain aspects of her own artistic practice in this lecture by transferring stories and traces from the material world to different physical, political or fictitious states. Her dialogue partner will be Sabina Holzer.
