Letter Lecture, 1-88 slides, Karin Reisinger, 2019

88 x digital ink prints of 10x15 cm 



Karin Reisinger has as a part of her research undertaken several excursions to the north of Sweden, being interested in indigenous perspectives. Thus, as an academic she found herself in a similar position to the explorer and adventurer who have filled the collections of museums with exotic specimen (and speciwomen?). This journey has led her to specifically ask questions about how we can collect knowledge without just extracting it, and how to reciprocate to the place, situation or community we initially took it from. For Galleri Majkens group show 'Unreliable Naturalists' at Dieselverkstaden in April 2019 her research is exhibited in the shape of a letter-lecture presenting her excursions, her findings and her open questions to an invisible expedition leader (or curator) and a strolling audience.

Karin Reisinger, architect with a PhD in Visual Culture from Vienna UT. Karin teaches Art in Changing Environments at Vienna UT (Institute of Art and Design). Karin was recently research fellow at ArkDes Stockholm, following a postdoctoral fellowship in Critical Studies in Architecture at KTH Stockholm (2016-2017) which allowed her to engage with the mining areas of Northern Sweden. Book chapters include “Insomnia: Viewing Ecologies of Spatial Becoming-With” in After Effects (forthc. 2019, Actar), “Abandoned Architectures: Some Dirty Narratives” in Architecture and Feminisms (2018, Routledge), and “Connective Oscillations: Architectures Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” in More (forthc. 2019, Didapress). Karin co-organised the AHRA conference Architecture and Feminisms: Ecologies, Economies, Technologies (2016, KTH Stockholm) and edited, together with Meike Schalk, the volumes Architecture and Culture issue 5(3) called “Styles of Queer Feminist Practices and Objects in Architecture,” and the field issue 7(1) called “Becoming a Feminist Architect,” both 2017.


Karin was educated in architecture and cultural studies

and pursued her PhD: Grass Without Roots. Towards Nature Becoming Spatial Practice at the Visual Culture Unit at Vienna UT. Starting with a focus on nature preservation areas, her research has been unveiling relations of preservation and governmentality, colonialism, and issues of access. This aspect is based on migrating concepts within a global interplay, but accumulates a myriad of small-scale perspectives and narratives of conflicting genealogies.


Her second field of interest is the arena of exploitation

(extraction of resources). Feminist and posthuman methodology support her critical perspectives in which she draws on multi-perspectival approaches to contradict “big history”. She is interested in unexpected agencies of environments, activists and excluded actors and their feminist cartographies.
