Mira Hirtz is a performance artist, art mediator and art theorist who bases her work on somatic practices and explores the value of creativity for human beings and ecologies. Mediating, facilitating and creating go hand in hand in her work which takes many different forms, from workshops to performances and video pieces, drawing and texts as well as curation in exhibition contexts. She graduated from the MFA Creative Practice 2019 at Trinity Laban Conservatoire and Independent Dance London with a project on »being part of nature, somehow« and has ever since continued her research about the relationship of human and other-than-human entities. 2016 she graduated from the MA art research and media philosophy at University of Art and Design Karlsruhe, Germany where she teaches performative research. She co-edited the online platform »reciprocal turn«, worked as an art mediator at documenta14, explored the museum space as a rehearsal space in the frame of the Critical Zones exhibition at ZKM Karlsruhe 2020/21, and co-curated the program series »How do we care?« at Badischer Kunstverein Karlsruhe, 2020. She is also involved in exploring how to present non-human beings on stage in the frame of the theatre of the Anthropocene.
