Bea Bruecker is a biodesigner, researcher and artist. Her work has won numerous awards and explores the potential of biodesign as a tool for social, political and ecological progress in response to the climate catastrophe and increasing social injustice. Since completing her MA at the Royal College of Art she has taught the Bio platform of the MA Fashion program and regularly works on multidisciplinary projects, for example with researchers from the Fraunhofer Society, with makerspaces or on theater and film productions.
Bea is challenging current systems and shows how a circular biological approach within a post-capitalism model can be a solution to lessen our environmental impact. You will learn what biomaterials are and how to use biodesign as a tool to make fashion local, accessible and transparent, while restoring ecosystems. She proves that design can help to develop alternative scenarios and discusses the role of future designers.
