Giulia Bruno is an artist based in Berlin and Milan who works with photography and video. After completing her MA in Biology at the Università degli Studi in Milan, she studied Photography at CFP Bauer and Filmmaking at Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti, both in Milan. Her artistic and photographic research centers on themes such as technology, political and cultural activism, nature and language, and the contradictions that arise in their interaction. Her work explores the intersection between the artificial and natural landscape, with reference to issues such as climate change, the relationship between life and science, biodiversity and language, and the fractures that emerge. Her works have been exhibited internationally, and her film “Capital” won first prize at Visioni Italiane. In 2018, her artistic research on language as a technological act was selected for ArtReview’s Future Greats. She has collaborated with Armin Linke for many years, and their recent exhibition “Earth Indices” was developed in collaboration with scientists from the Anthropocene Working Group for the Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt in Berlin. Bruno teaches at the Silva System Studio at the Academy of Design in Eindhoven. Her latest work, “Matar la Nube,” created in collaboration with Paola Raheli, was exhibited in Mexico City with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute and Error. This work is the first chapter of an ongoing artistic research project that examines the ambiguities and contradictions of contemporary definitions of nature, agriculture, and climate change in connection to the urban and ancestral landscape, and the original creation of language, myths, and their functions.
earth indices | anthropocene curriculum digital publication Giulia Bruno and Armin Linke Who is writing the chronicles of the planet? What are the tools and practices that allow us to read Earth’s changes? For many years, artists Giulia Bruno and Armin Linke have closely followed the Anthropocene Working Group’s (AWG) research on the geological evidence for the new Earth epoch of the Anthropocene. Earth Indices portrays both the natural landscapes from which anthropogenic sediments are extracted as well as the complexities of laboratory processes and the inscription devices they employ to transform the sediment into data that can be interpreted. For the exhibition, a multilayered archive was created that relates the anthropogenic traces in the Earth system to the emerging body of knowledge of a new geological epoch. The navigable image map and PDF that appear here constitute an in progress digital publication resulting from the artistic installation presented at HKW Berlin 19.05-17.10.2022 and are part of the artwork developed and activated through commenting sessions with the scientists of the AWG hosted by Giulia Bruno and Armin Linke. Taking the installation as a starting point, this artistic archiving initiates a conversation with the process being undertaken by the AWG, as they work towards concluding their research and voting on a reference point in order to have the Anthropocene officially recognized as a new subdivision of the geologic time scale.
