Anna Kubelík: Collaboration
Cornell in Rome Fall 2017 Lecture Series
As artist, inventor, and thinker, Anna Kubelík collaborates with a wide variety of people from diverse fields and disciplines within the arts and sciences, such as dancers, composers, and theatre directors, as well as scientists and most recently people from educational, scientific, and cultural organizations. It is therefore inherent to her work to range in scale, material, and context — but there is always a performative element to be found in her practice.
After studying at Chelsea College of Art and Design, Kubelík went on to finish her diploma at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. After working as an architect in London and Berlin, she started her own practice.
Based in Berlin, Kubelík works internationally on projects within the fields of art and design. She has received numerous awards and scholarships, including the first prize BLOOOM award at the Cologne Art Fair, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Council Fond Berlin for the Arts and Culture. She has had residencies in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Currently, she is a fellow at the Akademie Schloss Solitude as well as the holder of the Rome Prize at the German Academy in Rome.
Kubelik looks at her education as an architect and how it has led her to collaborations with a number of diverse fields reaching from dance and music to science and economics. Architecture is not only built matter.
