Daniela Silvestrin is a curator, cultural researcher, and organizer-facilitator with a background in law, history of art, and curatorial studies. In her work she explores hybrid artistic practices and knowledge production at the intersection of art, law, and science, and works with curatorial, artistic, and theoretical approaches that converge through the medium of exhibitions, installations, discursive events, and text production. Driven by the emergence of critical political and ethical concerns, her main research interests concern the various physical, ethical, and other boundaries and distinctions between the human and non-human, life and matter, that gradually become invisible due to techno-scientific innovation.
Daniela is currently one of the 2017 participants in the international research program in art and curatorial practices Art by Translation, directed by Maud Jacquin and Sébastien Pluot and organized in partnership with CNEAI= art center in Pantin/Paris, and the French art schools Ecole Supérieure des Beaux Arts TALM Angers (Esba TALM) and Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts Paris-Cergy (ENSAPC).
She recently started to work in the project Making Visible – Performance, Art and Anonymity as part of the transdisciplinary Project and Research Group Reconfiguring Anonymity at the Leuphana University in Lüneburg, and is co-editor of the forthcoming book and publication project META (Berlin / Mexico City, 2017), together with the artists Mario de Vega and Víctor Mazón Gardoqui.
