Elisabeth Falkensteiner and Baerbel Mueller, curators of the exhibition Ecologies and Politics of the Living, visited Tracy Naa Koshie Thompson in her studio in Tamale, Ghana to talk about her current work and her contribution for the upcoming exhibition.

Her work revolves around the interplay between biological and chemical processes. For the upcoming Vienna Biennale for Change 2021 Thompson will present bioplastic objects by processing industrially produced and processed food.
