Dominique Koch


Dominique Koch (1983) studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig. She currently lives and works in Basel and Paris. In her work, mostly designed as multi-part and multilayered immersive installations, she is particularly interested in the potential of art to open up imaginative spaces by means of formulating new perspectives on our world.

In her practice, she interweaves different fields of research to form intricate networks of knowledge. This need to critically re-examine established ways of thinking based on new knowledge means that questions about the relationship between human and nature and the idea of a holistic cosmos in view of current ecological and social crises are placed at the centre of her latest works.

Her most recent group shows include Protozone: Contamination/Resilience, Shedhalle Zürich (2020); WE HYBRIDS!, Istituto Svizzero di Roma (2020); Hypertopia, STATE Studio Berlin (2020); Lagos Biennial II (2019); and Mycelium as Lingua Franca and Trees of Life, Frankfurter Kunstverein (2019).

Participates in the exhibition "Science Friction" with the video and audiovideo installation Holobiont Society, 2017.
