ABOUT:

Natalie Mik (b. 1984 in Duesseldorf) is a Los Angeles-based Korean-German performance art curator, artist and writer.

Mik is interested in the traditions of the archive, ethnography, and the (a)historicity of time-based art. She uses performativity as a tool to explore these themes in relation to concepts of (im)materiality. Curatorial projects, collaborations and individual works seek to develop strategies to create connectedness, to counterbalance euro-normative genealogies of knowledge and to question the politics of representation in visual culture. They seek to understand art’s sociopolitical impact and responsibility of today.
