ACT at MIT

Curatorial-Editorial Urgencies/ A Palimpsest of Species and Spaces

Anna-Sophie Springer
Co-Director of K. Verlag, Berlin

Arguing that current matters in natural history are messier than some of the most compelling scientific and artistic representations seem to suggest, Springer will discuss her current research and previous exhibitions and publications which have engaged a complex spectrum of species and spaces to create possible affective and conceptual affinities beyond representation.

Anna-Sophie Springer is a writer, editor, curator, and co-director (with Charles Stankievech) of K. Verlag, an independent press exploring the book as a site for exhibition making. Her practice stimulates fluid relations among images, artifacts, and texts in order to produce new geographical, physical, and cognitive proximities, often in relation to historical archives. As a member of the SYNAPSE International Curators’ Network of the Berlin Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Springer co-edits the six-part intercalations: paginated exhibition series co-published by K. and the HKW. Together with Etienne Turpin she is the co-curator of the exhibition project 125,660 Specimens of Natural History (Jakarta, 2015/Berlin, 2016). She is currently researching her PhD at the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths College, London.
