Unsere Welt ist komplex.
Um sie zu verstehen, erforsche ich Verbindungen von Menschen und Naturen.

Ich bringe künstlerische und wissenschaftliche Forschung zusammen, und gemeinsam schaffen wir Begegnungsräume für neues Denken auf unserer einzigen Erde.

Die planetaren Grenzen können wir nicht verschieben.
Lasst uns Wissensgrenzen verschieben.

The scope of political ecology and of artistic research ­ - The public smog project

Workshop: “Transitions to a Low-Carbon Economy in Comparative Perspective”, April 02-03, 2019
Organized by Dr. habil. Berthold Kuhn, Freie Universität Berlin, Prof. Kurt Hübner, University of British Columbia and Anna-Lena Guske, Freie Universität Berlin

With the aim to show the diversity of strategies and challenges in different countries aiming at accelerating emissions reduction and promoting the transition to low-carbon economies, I introduced Amy Balkin's work 'Public Smog':
Amy Balkin's artistic research focuses on complex nature - finance systems by setting up a “clean air park” over Los Angeles through the purchase of emission credits. Her works showcases how 'innovative financial mechanisms’ fail to address the drivers of environmental and social damage.
Through the example of art & science & activism, the workshop participants grasped critical social aspects of transition policies and programs.

Planetary Health in Research and Education

Planetary Health: Scoping the German Research Landscape | Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS)
August 29, 2019

The IASS planetary health workshop invites selected research pioneers and policy makers with a broad range of expertise: on health, climate change, air quality, nutrition and food security, governance, education, and more. The majority of participants are associated with German research or policy institutes; this focus is complemented by perspectives from key international participants.

My talk included human and human aspects of planetary health, focusing on land use and sustainable agricultural practices as priority areas for planetary health research. As a research gap, I pointed out collaborative, transdisciplinary programs and their funding.
