Diann Bauer is an artist and writer based in London. She studied both art and architecture at the Cooper Union in NY and Goldsmiths College, London. She is currently a researcher at Westminster University working on questions regarding the discrepancy between time at extra-human scale and the linear persistence of temporality focusing on what this discrepancy means for how we understand ourselves as a species in relation to the anthropocene.
Much of her practice is collaborative and interdisciplinary with projects including Laboria Cuboniks, with whom she collaboratively wrote and published Xenofeminism, A Politics for Alienation in 2015. (laboriacuboniks.net) and A.S.T. (the Alliance of the Southern Triangle, a-s-t.co/), a working group of artists, architects and curators that use the art field as a platform to broaden interdisciplinary collaboration with a focus on urbanism and climate change. They are 2021 research fellows at AIRIE in the Everglades National Park, Florida USA.
Bauer has screened and exhibited independently at Tate Britain, The ICA, The Showroom and FACT Liverpool, Deste Foundation, Athens, The New Museum, and Socrates sculpture park, New York. She has recently completed a project with Arts at CERN and worked as part of the team on the German Pavilion for the 2021 Architecture Biennale in Venice.
