/Members: Sabine Bitter and Helmut Weber in conversation with Elke Krasny

Secession Podcast: Members is a series of conversations featuring members of the Secession. This episode is a conversation between the members Sabine Bitter and Helmut Weber in conversation with Elke Krasny. It was recorded on October 18, 2023.


Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber live in Vienna and Vancouver. They have worked, primarily in the medium of photography, on the politics of how cities, architectures, and urban territories are negotiated through images since 1994. Recent works on Educational Modernism include the research project “Performing Spaces of Radical Pedagogies” (SFU, Vancouver, 2020), contributions to the exhibitions “Education Shock” (HKW Berlin, 2021), and their current exhibition “Darkroom of Educational Modernism” (station urbaner kulturen, nGbK Hellersdorf, Berlin, 2023/2024).


Elke Krasny, PhD, is Professor of Art and Education at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Krasny’s research focuses on concerns and matters of care. Combining feminist care ethics and social reproduction theory, Krasny researches emancipatory practices concerned with counteracting social and environmental in/justices in architecture, art, urbanism, memory work, and curatorial practices in museums and urban spaces. In 2023, her book Living with an Infected Planet. Covid-19, Feminism, and the Global Frontline of Care was published. (transcript).
