Lena Reitschuster studied South Asian Studies and Religious Studies at Heidelberg University, Philosophy and Curatorial Practice at HfG Karlsruhe, and Media Studies at The New School in New York. Her research is located at the intersection of philosophy, biology and art. She is interested in the history of ideas and notions around interspecies dependencies, emerging cosmologies and the conceptualizations of broad scale system change in the face of ecological crisis. During the past three years, she was part of the Critical Zone Study Group initiated by Bruno Latour in preparation of the »Critical Zones« exhibition at ZKM. The sessions involved discussing concepts and theories practically, experimentally and philosophically.
