Fellowship at IASS Potsdam
Kat is now an artist fellow at IASS Potsdam – Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies. In the next year she will focus on the project This Land is Not Mine which focusses on the region of Lausatia, where Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic meet, the home of the Sorbian ethnic group. This new media project explores identity in a region of co-exisiting cultures that is undergoing fundamental socio-economic changes as brown coal mining in the region is phased out.
