Daniela Silvestrin is a curator, cultural researcher, program developer and organizer-facilitator for international cultural projects. With a background in law, history of art, and curatorial studies she explores hybrid artistic practices and knowledge production at the intersection of art, law, and science. Working with curatorial, artistic, and theoretical approaches that converge through the medium of exhibitions, installations, discursive events, and text production, she develops and produces projects at the intersection of art, society, science and technology.
Driven by the emergence of critical political and ethical concerns, her particular interest lies in contemporary art that crosses over into the sciences or explores our relationship with the environment, exploring 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 currently works as 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.
