André Hinderlich's work transcends disciplines at intersections of performance art, post-dramatic and experimental theatre, video art, science and socio-philosophical reflection. Hinderlich has worked as an actor, performer, film maker, photographer, theatre teacher and dramaturg. In his own artistic work, he is currently investigating culture-nature relationships in the sense of posthumanist thought and the possibilities of queering attributed binary identity. He has also dealt with the topic of power constellations and various conflicts in late modern societies.
