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, 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 a research associate in the project Making Visible – Performance, Art and Anonymity within 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. Tracing Unknown Knowns (Berlin / Mexico City, 2018), together with the artists Mario de Vega and Víctor Mazón Gardoqui.
