Daniela Bershan a.k.a. DJ Baba Electronica (DE/IL)
is a visual artist, DJ, activist and researcher that can best be described as a media-vagabond and fearless sampler. In her work – ranging from sculpture and performance to social organisation and music – she conceptualizes not just the characteristics of her materials but with and through them the skills and objects they can be read with. Sampling and being sampled she dissects choreographies and scores in order to make tangible how they operate; She is committed to create and circulate queering tools. For Daniela object-making, situations, material processes, affective encounters, active study, performance, remixing and choreography are all expressions of sense-making processes, compose potentia-spaces for erotic/aesthetic practices and nonmonotonic thinking. #DJsarelisteners
