Raphaëlle Mueller is an artist and researcher, whose multiply-composed, chemically infused body began as European-ness that had inherited plastics and chemicals from her mother’s unknowing exposure as she incubated in her womb. Starting from this observation, her artistic practice merges art and science within a discursive geopolitical agenda and her exploratory methodologies indicate multilateral dialogues by questioning hidden and speculative relations between ecology, politics, the human and the non-human. Her work aims to operate a linking between the scientific and non-scientific worlds, especially in the frame of ecocides and industrial hazards, through an artistic practice and alternative tools (DIY open protocols). Hence, her explorations/excavations aim at the apprehension and understanding of the toxic materiality of the Anthropocene/Capitalocene and the attempt to forge new interspecies and inter-media links. She studied photography at the ZHDK-Zurich, art and new media (BA) and artistic research (MA CCC) at HEAD-Geneva. She got the HES-SO Excellence Award in Visual Arts 2017 and the Grant Bourses déliées 2018.

She is the author of Profilage Facial 1775-2017, In analysis, revue transdisciplinaire de psychanalyse et sciences, 3 (2), 2019.
