Sonja Bäumel

Currently based

Sonja Bäumel lives and works in Vienna and Amsterdam.
Her artefacts mediate between art and science, fashion
and science, design and science, between clothes and
body, between fiction and facts. Her works evolve from
permanent confrontation with scientific data and facts,
which she often generates herself in experiments and
in research labs.
