Soenke Zehle

Media Theorist, Educator and Researcher at HBKsaar, Co-CEO K8

As a media theorist, I write, teach, curate, with a focus on collaborative arts-and-technology research. I mostly work together with others, even though I really enjoy writing and working with language more generally. Lecturer in Media Theory at the Academy of Fine Arts Saar (HBKsaar), I am also managing co-director of K8 Institut für strategische Ästhetik gGmbH, the academy’s non-profit company for think tank, transfer, and training activities, as well as an affiliate researcher at the Ubiquitous Media Technologies Lab at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). Between 2012 and 2018 I worked as managing director of the academy’s xm:lab - Experimental Media Lab.
