Holobiont Society by Dominique Koch at Frankfurter Kunstverein (Frankfurt, Germany)

On view through January 19, 2020.

The title of Dominique Koch’s work “Holobiont Society” consists of two terms. “Holobiont” stems from biology. Coined by microbiologist Lynn Margulis in 1991, it is a technical term for the merge of a host and all its microbiological guests. Koch combines this with the word “Society,” opening her work to the possibility of understanding biological hypotheses as metaphors for social and political models.
