Daniela Brasil and Bernhard König
Graz, Austria

 

Our work is committed to investigate and engage with some of the urgencies that the present ecological and social challenges push us to. We understand that sustainable and inclusive futures should be nurtured by enlarging our capacity of re-imagining and actively co-creating the world we  – and all planetary creatures – want to live in together. Besides aligning our thoughts and practices with worldviews of interconnectedness, this website frames our work into the categories of art, architecture, landscape, public space // research, education, event, exhibition, publication. Nevertheless, if we meet personally sometime, we will surely tell you these stories otherwise…

Bernhard König
Bernhard König studied architecture and urbanism in Weimar, Oxford and Zurich and has worked for Herzog & de Meuron in Basel, the Büro für Urbane Projekte in Leipzig and the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation (IBA Urban Redevelopment 2010). and the Institute for Architecture and Landscape TUGraz from 2010-19.  Bernhard has been researching social, technical, climatic and ecosystemic issues of urban landscapes whilst being responsible for landscape-based test-bed projects like the Austrian Pavilion “breathe.austria” at Expo2015 in Milan. He is a member of Breathe Earth Collective, founder architect of ecosphere.institute, and Executive Director at Green4Cities .

Daniela Brasil
Daniela Brasil is an artist, activist, curator, educator and researcher. She grew up in a tropical concrete jungle on the shores of the Atlantic and lived in various bioregions until she moved to Graz in 2010. She studied Architecture and Urban Design in Rio de Janeiro, Environmental Urban Design in Lisbon and Barcelona and Social Sculpture in Oxford, and received her MFA and PhD in Artistic Strategies for Public Participation at Bauhaus University Weimar. She was teacher and researcher at Bauhaus University Weimar and the Institute for Contemporary Art  at the Technical University of Graz.  She is on the advisory board of <rotor> centre for contemporary art,  an active member of the Daily Rhythms Collective and Neuberg College – Verein für Übersetzung der Gesellschaft;  and works with the Ecoversities Alliance as well as InRiCo – Indigenous Rights Collective Graz. Her work is very diverse, site and context specific, it takes shape through installations, performances, texts, the creation of spaces of encounters and learning environments for all ages…  basically, the work focus on transformative and emancipatory learning processes, hopefully contributing to the construction of the pluriverse.
