Studio Visits – Joe Dumit & Miriam Simun

More Than Human Encountering, 21 September 2021.

At Studio Olafur Eliasson, Berlin.


In September 2021, Studio Olafur Eliasson welcomed Joe Dumit and

Miriam Simun to lead an exploratory embodiment workshop, which

they called ‘more-than-human encountering’. Joe Dumit is an

anthropologist of science and technology and a specialist in contact

improvisation, and Miriam Simun is a multimedia artist working with

a focus on the sensorial, particularly taste, smell, and most recently


They guided studio members in a quiet exercise of encountering

the more-than-human within our own bodies. Through observation

of our breaths and subtle body movements, the exercise drew

attention to the microbes that co-mingle in every inhalation, and to the

micro-movements of our muscles and cells – whether a tensing little

toe or the tiny balancing give-and-take required to stand still – that

make up ‘the coherence of our self’.

Gender Diversity and The Curious Body, 12 October 2022.

Studio Olafur Eliasson.


Alexander Hahne (he/him) is a specialist in gender-reflective pedagogy

and gender and sexual diversity. He is particularly interested in the inner

attitude of expecting nothing and knowing nothing, fake dance and

movement therapy, sincerity and integrity, and the Japanese dance

performance method of Butoh. KiKi (she/her) is a somatic practitioner,

exploring healing/meditative somatic practices, breath work, sound

healing, sense communication, body and nature integration, and

improvisation as a tool for authentic self-expression.

The movement workshop that Alexander and KiKi organised at Studio

Olafur Eliasson focused on the complexity of gender identity and

questions around non-neutrality in sharing space.
