Workshop for adults at the exhibition of Lin May Saeed

The workshop takes place within the exhibition dedicated to Lin May Saeed. We will leave the anthropocene for a utopian and ancestral place, in search of a possible deep interconnection. Animals will be protagonists on the stage of an imaginary Theater of Eden. The activity will be developed through graphic-pictorial and body languages.

Free activity: admission fee based on membership category.

Reservations required: biglietteria@gamec.it

Note biografiche

Lin May Saeed was born in 1973 in Würzburg, Germany and grew up in Wiesbaden a mid-sized city near Frankfurt/Main. She had a Jewish-German family background on her mother’s side and an Iraqi family background on her father’s side. Saeed studied sculpture at the Düsseldorf Art Academy under Luise Kimme and Tony Cragg from 1995 to 2001. It was there that she became interested in animal rights, studied the animal rights philosopher Tom Regan and took part in corresponding actions (e.g. protests against the fur trade). She has lived vegan ever since. After moving from Düsseldorf to Berlin, she founded the exhibition space Center in Berlin-Tiergarten in 2003, which she ran until 2009. From 2008 to 2010, Lin May Saeed taught sculpture at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. Lin May Saeed passed away on August 30, 2023 as a result of a brain tumor at the age of 50, two weeks before the opening of her solo exhibition at the Georg Kolbe Museum in Berlin.
