About the artists

Margherita Pevere
Margherita Pevere (IT/DE) is finalizing a PhD in artistic research and queer studies at Aalto University in Helsinki. The complex of her works moves at the interface between body and environment. Starting with reproductive organs, frameworks between sexuality and gender are explored. She is a co-founder of the art group Fronte Vacuo.

Theresa Schubert
Dr. Theresa Schubert (DE) received her PhD in media art from Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. In an aesthetic between alchemy and futurism, Theresa Schubert’s works question anthropocentrism and its limits. She raises issues such as our treatment of meat, factory farming, but also our own bodies as resources.

Karolina Żyniewicz
Karolina Żyniewicz (PL/DE)  is a PhD candidate in the Nature-Culture international PhD program at the Faculty of Liberal Arts, University of Warsaw, and previously graduated from the Academy of Arts in Lodz. She decided to make biology, biotechnology, and bio-medicine the background of her artistic practices.
