Henrike Kohpeiß is a PhD candidate in philosophy and a research assistant at the collaborative research center “Affective Societies” at Free University, Berlin. Her dissertation unfolds an affective analysis of the bourgeois subject and engages in an encounter between Frankfurt School critical theory and Black studies. She has been teaching on i.a. Sylvia Wynter, philosophy and the Shoah and bourgeois society and its critique. Occasionally, she engages in artistic collaborations in dance and performance, mostly as a dramaturg or writer, sometimes as a performer.
