Yvonne Reiners works as an independent curator and art-mediator in Berlin. To her, mediating is an artistic research process in itself that allows for enquiry – to re-imagine, re-arrange, and experiment with its methodology and ways of communication.
She is pursuing on her phd (Dr. phil in art) at HFBK Hamburg about performative conversations. In 2014 she initiated the salon-series Performing Encounters at different institutions, i.a. KunstWerke Berlin; Goetheinstitut Breslau and Künstlerhaus Bethanien. Performing Encounters was awarded with the research scholarship 2015 of the city Berlin. Yvonne is awardee of the nGbK stipend for art mediation for the grassroots online game Mapping the Commons.
