With Asia Bazdyrieva
Why are conversations about climate change and war so strangely separated? Writer and researcher Asia Bazdyrieva speaks about the production of Ukraine-as-territory and the sociotechnical imaginary of sustainability.
The talk takes place in English and is moderated by Charlotte Knaup, curator at Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart.
About the speaker:
Asia Bazdyrieva is an art historian and a Ph.D. candidate at the Make/Sense program between FHNW Academy of Art and Design and Linz University. Her research interests span visual culture, (feminist) epistemology, and environmental humanities at large, and pay particular attention to the project of Soviet modernity with its ideological and material implications in spaces, bodies, and lands. She co-authored ‘Geocinema’—a collaborative project that explored the possibilities of a “planetary” notion of cinema. 'Geocinema' has been nominated for the Schering Stiftung Award for Artistic Research (2020), and the Golden Key prize at the Kassel film festival (2021). She holds master's degrees in art history from the City University of New York and analytical chemistry from the Kyiv National University.
