Daniela Silvestrin is a curator, cultural researcher, and organizer-facilitator with a background in law, history of art, and curatorial studies. Through exhibitions, discursive events and text production she explores hybrid artistic practices and knowledge production at the intersection of art, society and the techno-sciences by means of curatorial, artistic, and theoretical approaches.
Her interest lies in practices and approaches that critically address, explore and question the physical, ethical, social and geographical boundaries and paradigms from an artistic perspective. Within this field, her research focuses on the potential of speculative and disruptive creative practices to produce new forms of experimental orientation knowledge — and thus on the social relevance of such artistic work and research through its humanistic view onto the meaning and implications of current local and trans-local social and techno-scientific developments.
Daniela is part of the curatorial team behind the COLLECTIVE PRACTICES program at the art initiative and platform ACUD MACHT NEU in Berlin, project leader and curator of the project dokART Zukunftstreff 2020, and co-director of dokumentART – films & future, a biennial European film festival in Neubrandenburg.
