Luïza Luz (they/them)
From São Paulo, Brasil - Lives in Berlin, Germany

As a transdisciplinary artist, researcher, and singer-composer, Luïza Luz investigates multisensorial ways of learning and sharing emancipatory knowledge. Their work spans the human and more than human worlds, engaging with intuitive, theoretical, and practical approaches towards intersectional environmentalism, language, and planetary narratives that actualize the concept of nature. 

In the fields of performance, sound, and installation, they collaborate with both digital and organic entities to co-create avant-pop soundscapes, and immersive, and collaborative ecosystems.

As an extension of their artistic work, Luïza Luz teaches the seminar "Planetary Embodiment” at the Berlin University of Arts for students and non-students, while pursuing their masters degree at the Art in Context Institute. Through this course and other projects, they strive to contribute to a broader movement towards structural change, and radical imagination while expanding timelines of care, reparation, and belonging.
