Agata Kowalewska is an artist and PhD candidate at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Warsaw. With a special interest in spaces of human-nonhuman conflict, ferity and nonhuman cultures, she often collaborates with researchers from different disciplines. Combining art and research, her work tells stories: of sea fire – toxic glowing dinoflagellates thriving in the dying Baltic, of porcine sex and politics of purity, of beaver cultures in cities and why we should allow some trees to die.
Jacob Eriksen is an artist, researcher and lecturer at Sound Studies and Sonic Arts, Berlin University of the Arts. His research explores how more-than-human relations are addressed through critical posthumanisms in sound art. His own artistic practice is often focused on synthesized drones, ambiances, and noise in the forms of performances, installations, and videos. He is part of the art and theory collective Listening-With and the Berlin research colloquium Sonic Thinking.
