Lecture by Artist Yana Zschiedrich

Yana Zschiedrich is an artist from Leipzig and presented her work Hybris and the collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute to the students in a lecture on site. The students gained wonderful insights into artistic work and research in collaboration with an institute and the challenges that need to be overcome when working with insects in the studio. Yana also impressively described the structure of the individual components of the Hybris installation and discussed ethical, animal rights and philosophical questions about working with mealworms with the students.
