Maike Statz (AUS), born 1992, is an interior architect and artist educated in The Netherlands and Australia, now living in Bergen, Norway, working with writing and installation. Maike is invested in the influence of architecture on individuals and society, focusing on the relationship between gender, sexuality, and space, questioning how history is embedded in our various architectures and what power dynamics are at play. Recently Maike also introduced science fiction into their work, suggesting feminist science fiction is a literary genre through which the cultural constructions of race, class, sex, sexuality, and gender can be decoded. “What can we learn from spaces built through writing, in a context where reality is ruptured and re-imagined?” Maike grasped our attention by these various opening approaches to how architectures are constructed and functioning, and even better: Suggesting methods of how to challenge those structures both on physical as well as philosophical levels. You may call it ‘hacking of disciplined reality’. Thank you. Maike started writing for Karmaklubb* in 2021, hopefully into eternity. Maike also work collaborate with Danja Burchard, another friend of Karma*, currently (fall 2021) on the artistic written encounter BiAS (Bodies in Architecture Structures).
