Penn State School of Visual Arts Welcomes Visiting Artist Katrin Hornek

Katrin Hornek

Penn State School of Visual Arts' John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series is pleased to welcome Katrin Hornek. Hornek's lecture, Studies after Nature, will take place Tuesday, February 9, 12:00 - 1:30 PM in the Palmer Lipcon Auditorium, Palmer Museum of Art.

Hornek's work in installation, video and photography stages a dialogue between the industrial and digital revolution, discussing tensions between growth and construction, control and uncertainty, geo-engineering and climate change. The talk will focus on her recent work from a book project which was composed of all the title pages of books on plastic in the Los Angeles Central Public Library (2013); to an exhibition, Mission W, in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Wienerwald (Viennese Woods); to her current work for “Plastic Entanglements: Ecology, Aesthetics, Materials," at the Palmer Museum in fall, 2017.

For more information about Katrin Hornek's work, visit or stop by the Borland Project Space.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Institute for Arts and Humanities, Borland Project Space, Material Research Institute, and the John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series.

Lectures are free of charge and open to the public. For complete details about the John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series, and an entire listing of events, please visit:
