Bio
Ilka Theurich (*1971) has exhibited and performed in a variety of countries and contexts. She works as a researcher, curator, consultant and teacher of a broad range of projects, including large-scale events, intimate performances, publications and workshops.

Her work revolves around questions of the performative context of space, horizontal democracy, critical spatial practice and spatial politics. She is interested in the deployment of her social-poetical-performance-practice as a methodology in the field of critical spatial practice.

Currently, she collaboratively works and consults on conceptualising and implementing performance art based research on urban planning and architecture on all scales as well as projects that include strategic frameworks, research, curatorial approaches, and discursive activities in order to create customised approaches for each project.

Artist Statement


My thesis is, that the moment of a poetic encounter may irritate, disclose, or unsettle, but at the same time has the potential to be a stimulus to the public space and the residents. This moment has the power to activate, to give shape to public places through actions, and to create space for shared human experiences.
