Kathrin Böhm is a London based artist, and her work is operating in and outside of the art world, practicing in the real economy and connecting different trans-local communities. Main interests in her work are the collective (re-)production of public space, trade as public realm and the everyday as a starting point for culture.
Kathrin is the founder and co-founder of a number of organisations and initiatives, including the social and cultural enterprise Company Drinks, the Centre for Plausible Economies (together with Kuba Szreder), International Foundation Myvillages (together with Wapke Feenstra and Antje Schiffers), the art and architecture office Public Works, and UNO INO a network for sustainable business transformation.
I contribute as a researcher to the wider topics of New Economy, Usership of Art and the Production of Public Space.
My work takes place through collaborations and the co-production of culture and change within everyday situations, be it a business, a village or an urban neighbourhood. The production of culture is an everyday activity and exists everywhere. The way we do things together, constitutes the spaces and economy we want to have. My motto is to think things in the making, and my emphasis is on translating ideas for a better future into actualities.
