Berit Fischer

Berit Fischer is an independent curator and writer who has worked internationally since 1999. She currently is a PhD researcher at the Winchester School of Art/Southampton University, UK and investigates how the curatorial can activate a micropolitical and holistic making of social empathy as an approach on post-representational curation. Beyond the PhD, her curatorial research interests focus on socially produced spaces, the specification of art as a producer of new knowledge and a means to permeate the status quo, the creation of fields of action, and the development of spaces for critical engagement.

In addition Berit Fischer is a Yoga practitioner since 1999 and received her 200 hours Ashtanga Yoga teaching certification in 2013 through the Ashtanga Studio Berlin (Andrea Lutz) and Manju Pattabhi Jois (oldest son of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, recognized worldwide as the foremost authority on Ashtanga Yoga). She has participated in numerous workshops with Nancy Gilgoff, Manju Pattabhi Jois, Matthew and Carla Vollmer and Regina Ehlers. In her own practice and teaching she seeks awareness and connectivity within and around us.
