Program Coordinator – The Human Condition in the 21st Century

Bio

With an academic background in Art History and Curatorial Studies and working experience in the cultural sector in Frankfurt, Bern and New York, Alice is passionate about operating at the intersection of contemporary art, science and technology. In her research, she is interested in transdisciplinary projects and hybrid art practices in the late 1960s and 1970s and explores how the epistemological potential of these practices continually changes and questions our perspectives on the world.
At THE NEW INSTITUTE, Alice will help facilitate such projects by supporting the program The Human Condition in the 21st Century as Program Coordinator.

QUESTIONS
  • What gives you hope?
    The freedom and flexibility of thought that I encounter again and again when discovering works of art, but also the profoundness I find in some of them. The strength, rigor and resistance of the artists and the people who are working to sustain and develop our culture(s).

  • How does change happen?
    Change happens through self-reflection, the power of imagination and – most importantly – a rigorous will to act. Change becomes possible when we come together as a collective to collaborate and re-imagine possibilities for the future.

  • List three important values in your life?
    Joan Didion.
