Sybille Neumeyer (*1982; based in Berlin) is an interdependent artist and researcher with a background in art history, linguistics, ethnology and visual communication. Through her artworks and participatory workshops she investigates environmental issues and relationships between humans and non-humans. Her research draws from various fields such as biology, history of science, anthropology, medicine, geology and science fiction - often in collaboration and exchange with scientists - and opens post-disciplinary perspectives for her work. Through polyphonic cartographies, installations, walks, performative lectures and video essays she is examining the intersections of biodiversity loss, climate crisis, biopolitics and multispecies health. Sybille Neumeyer's work is supported by institutions and artist-residencies such as Akademie Schloss Solitude, ARCUS-Project (JP), POGON (HR), HIAP (FI), NIDA Art Colony (LT), THAV (TW), DESY (DE), Jan van Eyck Academy (NL), amongst others, and shown on international exhibitions. Recent projects are "souvenirs entomologiques" for "Critical Zones - Observatories for Earthly Politics"; ZKM Karlsruhe (2020) and "voicing encounters - a narrative cartography of virus" as part of "Contagious Cities: KOEXISTENZ" at and around the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (2019).
Currently Sybille Neumeyer is a guest researcher at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, where she examines ecologies of care and control, symbiotic assemblages, and stor(i)ed matters. Further she is an artist fellow at the IASS - Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam where she focuses on embodied memories, more-than-human health and transformative microbial associations.
