“Vera Borrmann is a philosopher, embodiment researcher & practitioner, speaker, facilitator and trainer based in Vienna. Her main interest, research and exploration quest are the body, embodiment and perception. She is a research associate at the University of Freiburg and the founder of MIYOMI – a platform where she develops, teaches and presents her approach on embodiment. There, she offers experimental, interactive workshops and trainings with various collaboration partners on embodiment & perception, communication & encounter culture as well as ethics & technology assessment.

She studied philosophy and humanities at KIT Karlsruhe (Germany), Universidade de Coimbra (Portugal) and University of Vienna (Austria) and worked on topics like identity, human enhancement,  the lived body, body modification, trans- and posthumanism, futurebodies, synthetic biology and new emerging technologies at the Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (KIT) in Karlsruhe and at the Institute for Technology Assessment (OEAW) in Vienna. Alongside research itself, (stakeholder) workshops were always very important to her in order to enable settings for informed discourse and co-thinking about topics like: how do we as humans wish to live and deal with new technologies? How do we envision our future environment and lifeworld?

 

Her current project is to expand her MIYOMI program and to explore the fields of Artistic Research and Art&Science in order to create an interdisciplinary approach for her PhD project about embodied emotion, empathy and creativity in context of high-tech (human-machine interaction) and no-tech.”
