Micaela Terk (New York, 1990) is an artist, facilitator, and writer-publisher based in Amsterdam. Her research into and against choreographies of power looks to mend correlations between moving, sensing, and making within institutional environments. Using formats such as workshops, performances, publications, and event curation, Micaela questions traditionally valued forms of knowledge production and emanation. She is the founder of Goodbye Books and director of the Embodied Knowledge Bureau.
