Carolin Meyer

Shaped by her experience of transracial adoption at birth (from Kurdish Yazidi to German), she is primarily interested in embodiment and the body, and deeply committed to making socially engaged work that is viscerally affective. Other topics of interest are identity, racialisation, techno-social transformations and other 'hot button issues', such as isolation in Covid-times, climate change and AI.

Project at the IAS

Carolin's project is titled 'Collective experience of music & ecstatic participation as research'. Carolin aims to inspire students to actively employ music as a way of doing research beyond borders, languages and cultures. In particular, her interest in ecstatic participation will guide her work as Creative Fellow.
