The Fine Art Department of UMPRUM cordially invites you to a public talk of Maja Smrekar. The work of the internationally acknowledged artist Maja Smrekar deals with the relation human-animal-machine.
Her artistic practice is grounded in formal sculpture, video and new media but involves interdisciplinary research processes, combined with experimental studio work. It often employs biotechnological tools and is created in laboratory settings in collaboration with scientists and technologists. Smrekar’s political-theoretical position is largely inspired by feminism, biopolitics, necropolitics, ecofeminism, post-socialist labour studies and transhumanism.
