Indigenous Knowledge_ Cosmological Fictions Interview with Ursula Biemann

by Hélène Guenin

For more than twenty years, through her video essays, Swiss artist and writer Ursula Biemann has been addressing contemporary ecological challenges – mass extractivism, unequal access to natural resources… – as well as migration flows, or the consequences of human pressure on the environment and on life as a whole. More than ever, current events confirm the relevance of her complex vision, connecting the voracious exploitation of resources and irreversible transformation of soils and entire ecosystems to the social and environmental issues we face.
