Ayasha Guerin is an multidisciplinary artist and scholar based between Brooklyn and Berlin.
Lately she has been developing the workshop as artistic medium, designing and leading programs of conversation, reading, drawing, and body movement to explore contemporary entanglement-subjects. The modes and methods of her various workspaces inform one another: geography and archival research play important roles in her creative practice, and her pedagogy centers creative exploration.
Her academic research explores themes of urban ecology, community and security in public and private space. She is a PhD candidate in NYU's American Studies department, where her dissertation delves into the entanglements of race, nature and value on the New York waterfront. Ayasha was the 2018-19 Fellow of Urban Practice at The Urban Democracy Lab, the 2017-18 Graduate Fellow at NYU's Center for the Humanities, and before, the 2016-17 Andrew W. Mellon Pre-doctoral Fellow at the Museum of the City of New York.
Currently, she is doing new workshop research at Audre Lorde’s Archive in Berlin.
