Eva Meyer-Keller’s hybrid performances fluctuate between the visual and performing arts. Her stagings invoke elements of workshops, kitchens, laboratories and landscapes where she engages ‘hands-on’ to re-enact complex scientific and abstract phenomena. In Living Matters she employs the practices and images of cell research and infects them with the residue of personal crises: organic and inorganic bodies and substances react to and with each other; dividing, multiplying, arranging, self-organizing. The evening combines the methodical investigation of “life” with the overwhelming and excessive demands of lives being lived.

The collaboration of the artists with the biologists of the Simone Reber Laboratory for Quantitative Biology was crucial for the research process of Living Matters. Many of the methods used there on a daily basis, such as imaging techniques, can be found in the piece in one way or another. In a public discussion round, researchers from the laboratory and the Living Matters team will exchange views on the (in)similarities of aesthetic and scientific research and the potential of transdisciplinary collaboration. The discussion will be moderated by Yvonne Zindel, who works as an art and culture mediator and artistic assistant at the Berlin University of the Arts.
