Dr. Karolina Sobecka is an artist and researcher interested in imaginaries of post-natural landscapes and histories of ecosystem ecology and their legacies in today’s climate governance.

Sobecka’s projects often engage with scientists working at the crux of the conjoined feedback loops of ecology, economy, and media. Her artwork has been shown internationally, from the Queens Museum NY, to National Art Museum of China, to ZKM Karlsruhe, Transmediale Festival, and Haus Kulturen der Welt Berlin, and has received numerous awards, including from Creative Capital, New York Foundation for the Arts, and Princess Grace Foundation.

Sobecka has a PhD from Kunstuniversität Linz, is a researcher at the Institute for Experimental Design and Media at HGK Basel, and was a Visiting Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin from 2021 to 2023.
