Maud Canisius is an artist and landscape architect conducting research as a PhD candidate in the faculty of Arts & Design at the Bauhaus-University Weimar. Her practice is research-based and process-oriented with a focus on walking as an artistic gesture, sensorial tool, and connector between people and environments. These engagements serve multi-disciplinary outcomes ranging from interactive installations and photo series to written accounts. Canisius’ work is concerned with the socio-political aspects of environmental relations, culture/nature, embodiment, the Anthropocene, experimental cartography and feminist methodologies.
