Lecture by Johanna Seim

Johanna Seim was born in Berlin-Mitte in 1989, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. As the daughter of an artist couple from the GDR, she grew up in the midst of political upheaval and creative fun in the backyards of Prenzlauer Berg. After graduating from high school, she first did "something sensible", namely a master's degree in environmental economics. But climbing the career ladder wasn't her thing and her longing for creative expression and closeness to nature grew. In the summer of 2016, she packed what she needed onto a bike and cycled to Norway to study traditional Norwegian music in the small mountain village of Rauland in Telemark. She immersed herself in Norwegian culture and folk music and learned to play the Hardanger fiddle. Today she lives in Bergen and works as a freelance musician and filmmaker. In February 2023, she released her debut album "Temporary Pleasure". "Til Stede/ From soil to soul" is her first feature film. www.joha
