SPREAD EMANCIPATORY KNOWLEDGE  SPREAD EMANCIPATORY KNOWLEDGE

— I listen and express art as an unlearning platform. 


Luïza Luz (They / Them)
From São Paulo, Brasil - Lives in Berlin, Germany

Luïza Luz
is a transdisciplinary artist, educator, and cultural worker addressing the binary nature-culture in language, identity, and institutions. Their poetics evolve from written and vocal words, that become images, lectures, sound performances, installations, and collaborative (un)learning sites.

They graduated in Visual Arts (2017) and also studied with Indigenous authors such as Ailton Krenak and were awarded a scholarship by the Ecologist Fritjof Capra. In 2017 they published the book “T(t)ERRA: Artistic Pedagogical Approaches for The Cultivation of Ecological Cultures”. In 2021 they integrated the first Wanwu Council 萬物社 initiated by the artist Zheng Bo at Gropius Bau, Berlin.

Their latest audiovisual performance "After Nature Soundscape" (2020), a collaboration with artist Vi Amoras, was presented at the group show "Creative Code Art", held in New York, at Lightbox Gallery, and at "UUU - Unbounded, Unleashed, Unforgiving - Reconsidering Cyberfeminism in 2021", held at New Art City, and at the Kommunale Galerie, Berlin. In 2021 they also presented the lecture performance "A Grounding Piece of Land" at the Floating University, and won the Junge Akademie award from Akademie der Künste for their new project "The Privilege of Dreaming".

Luïza Luz is now an MA student at UdK - Universität der Künste, Berlin, at the Art in Context Institut, where they also coordinate the AStA department for Sustainability and Climate Justice and teaches the Seminar "Planetary Embodiment: Ancient Approaches, New Earthly Cultures".
