Anja Henckel

Co-founder Import Projects
Anja Henckel has a background in history, geography, media studies and critical
practice. She has worked independently since 2008, conceiving and realising events
for cultural initiatives such as Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary and Cycle Music
and Art Festival. She manages and conducts educational tours for EF Education First,
Academy Travel and Niche Art and Architecture Tours. In 2012 she co-founded the
nonprofit space import-projects.org, which developed as a platform for cultural
production and debate, concentrating on the interface between technology, identity
and community; stimulating reflection on subjects such as moral obligation,
accountability and transparency. These issues guide many other projects, she has
been involved such as the Antarctic Pavilion Antarctopia which she co-curated during
the Venice Biennale or the seemingly quixotic exhibition in Los Angeles titled Desert
Now. She co-curated a touring production titled The Perfect Wagner Rite in venues in
Berlin and Dublin, which received a nomination for Best Visual Production at The RHA
(Dublin) as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival. She participated in Performing
Encounters: Art in the Age of Earthquakes at Martin-Gropius-Bau with a Call of Duty
for cultural institutions, the annual Explore Conference at The Royal Geographical
Society London advocating for alteration of today’s ecological vocabulary. Recently
she shared a discussion at Kings College London on The Ethics of Impropriety and
Precarious Encounters and participated in an in-depth workshop on Learning
Unlearning in an AI-driven world during the annual Berlin Gazette conference named
Ambient Revolts. Anja is currently co-curating one of three commissioned partner
projects named Study Circles for the transmediale edition of 2019 in Berlin.
