Vanina Saracino is an independent curator, writer, and lecturer. Her work focuses on theories and art practices that explicitly question anthropocentric and binary worldviews from an ecological perspective, with an emphasis on lens-based and time-based art practices. She is currently teaching at the Institute of Time-based Media at Universität der Künste (UdK, Berlin), with Prof. Nina Fischer, where she also moderated and contributed to the symposium “More-than-human perspectives and regenerative art practices toward climate justice,” in collaboration with the Climate Crisis Thinking Network, University of Oxford (2022).
Saracino has co-curated the group exhibition Tiger in Space at the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (with Lea Vene and Marten Esko at EKKM, Tallinn, 2020) and the Screen City Biennial (with Daniela Arriado) on the topic Ecologies – lost, found and continued (2019), and edited the SCB Journal, Vol. 2. She has collaborated with Kumu Art Museum and EKKM (Tallinn, Estonia), Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi (Venice), TBA21 – Academy, Cinemateca Brasileira (São Paulo, BR), Cinemateca do MAM (Rio de Janeiro, BR), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Salzburger Kunstverein (Austria), The EYE Film Institute (Amsterdam, NL), and Centro Párraga (Murcia, SP) among others.
