Born in 1986, lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
Carola Uehlken is a transdisciplinary curator, and artist-researcher based in Berlin. Her research focuses on the entanglement of living and dead material and the many (im)possibilities in knowledge production towards an understanding of the human entity as ecosystems.
In recent years her curatorial practice has changed from a more common way of exhibition making to the development of workshops, experimental guided tours and to the creation of meeting points between different disciplines not only to overcome the fragmentation of knowledge but also to engage an open and free environment of exchange.
With disobedience, chaos and humour she opens up potential readings of alternative pasts and futures in which collaboration and participation support new, weird, climate-fictional narratives that enable critical perspectives and personal stories in all their complexity.
Carola Uehlken is in residency in the framework of the nomadic curatorial residency organised by Arts en résidence - réseau national, in partnership with Artistes en résidence, Le Port des Créateurs (Toulon) and Centre d’arts Fernand Léger (Port-de-Bouc).
On the 11th of September, the transdisciplinary curator Carola Uehlken is going to present her recent projects questioning and playing with invisible means of governance and linguistics. What are the artistic tools to discuss our frameworks of governance within a seemingly never stopping need to administrate life? She is going to present her research projects Glossary of Rotating Actions (since 2019), Governing Bodies (since 2018) and her ideas for The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether (upcoming in 2024).
