Bio (last updated 07/09/2017)
Verena Hermann is an artist and writer, mainly living and working in London, UK, where she also attended the programme MA Digital Culture at the Centre for Cultural Studies (Goldsmiths). Her research is aimed at unfolding unseen power mechanisms of [digital] technology and how they subtly mold socio-economic structures. She is not committed to any mode of practice, which led to an eclectic output of video, sound, performance and sculptural /installation works.
Latest projects included the exploration of warfare /weapon systems in the digital age, approached with systems theory and concluded with the video installation ‘All Hail the Drone!’. A demonstration of how dancing pogo can serve as a means of resistance, ‘Pogo as Warfare’, an essay and webpage design for the online publication ‘Flee Immediately! Issue 02 - Dance and Code’. A book entry for ‘The SAGE Encyclopedia of the Internet, 3v’ (to be published early 2018) on blockchain technology, a matter also enquired during the writing process by a piece of performance art, ‘Performing the Blockchain’, premiered at The Performance Studio in collaboration with The Arts Catalyst, London. Currently she familiarized with InfoSec tools and procedures and developed a workshop on Tor Browser, disk and email encryption and VPNs.
