Walking Festival of Sound: Artist Walks / Johanna Steindorf

“Many of my works deal with mediated presences, with the real-and-imagined presence of bodies in space. In the video series “Present views of past streets” you are taken along imaginary walks in Google Street View. In audio walks such as “Still here, sometimes there” a voice speaks over headphones and accompanies you on an actual walk outside. In this talk, I will present different works, look at them from the perspective of the current crisis and propose a discussion on the impact that the mediated experience has on our lives and what possible futures we can imagine.”

Johanna Steindorf is a German- Brazilian media artist. She works with participative performances, audio, photography and video. Often using narrative and mobile strategies, her work deals with the subject of migration, nomadism, gender and walking. She holds a bachelor’s degree from PUC-Rio de Janeiro in Visual Communication (2005), a diploma from the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne (2009) and a Ph.D. from the Bauhaus-University (2019). Johanna has been teaching regularly at different universities since 2015 including the University of Cologne and the University of Siegen.
