art4biodiversity is a non-profit entrepreneurial society that promotes and enables artistic initiatives which aim to cause meaningful and enduring ecological action. We aim to propel public discourse on matters of climate change, biodiversity, and sustainability forward into the 21st century. For us, artists can be key players in shaping the cultural transformation towards greener futures.

On a more practical level, we offer a framework for artists and curators to engage in non-profit projects with an ecological impetus. Reach out to us.

Bringing together and publicly connecting scientific knowledge, cultural discourse and real action is the guiding principle of art4biodiversity. We also like to plant trees.



Bernard Vienat is an art historian, curator, director and founder of art-werk. Based in Berlin and Geneva, he holds a Bachelor's degree in philosophy, art history and business from the University of Bern and a Master's degree in curatorial studies and art history from the Goethe University in Frankfurt and the Städelschule.

His research focuses on the interdisciplinary developments between art and science. He is a specialist of contemporary art and participatory art practices. For him, art, through narratives and forms, is a vector of curiosity, knowledge and offers new perspectives to the urgent problems of our time.

This is what emerges from his recent exhibitions such as the touring exhibition (re) (2021-ongoing), Futurs incertains at the Museum of Geology in Lausanne and at MAP (2019), There Will Come Soft Rains at Basis, Frankfurt (2018), Vorticidad in Mexico City (2016), or the double exhibition Let's invent a language to narrate my story at Dienstgebäude, Zürich and at andata.ritorno, Geneva (2014).

Andreas Greiner


Visual artist, lives and works between Berlin, Munich, and Kiel.

He works with various media, including (living) sculpture, installation, video, and algorithmic image generation. Since 2019, he has realized numerous artistic tree-planting projects. His artistic practice is based on the idea that every living being is an artist.

In 2016, he exhibited a sensational eight-meter-high chicken skeleton of a degenerated broiler chicken at the Berlinische Galerie. His interest has been lying in many living things such as flies, bioluminescent algae, genetic manipulations, and artificially generated cells.

It is always about a change of perspective, in which the classical separation between nature and culture, human and non-human is abolished. Since 2019, starting with the exhibition from Mönchehaus Museum Goslar, Greiner's theme has been trees and forests, under the series name ‘Jungle Memory’. He realized many exhibitions under the theme and introduced images of forests calculated by artificial intelligence.

Since 2022 he is a professor for media art at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts in Kiel.

Based in Berlin, Germany and Höör, Sweden

Mö, which means mountain in archaic Korean and maiden in Swedish, represents the collective vision of two artists Y-ul Suh (KR) and Kristina Malmefjäll (SE) exploring love and the innate human instinct to connect with nature and other living beings.

Their creations are intended to enrich our lives by transforming objects and space into an interactive environment for humans and nature. They have been creating projects together since 2022.
