Ursula Biemann (born 1955, Zurich, Switzerland) is an artist, writer, and video essayist. Her artistic practice is strongly research oriented and involves fieldwork in remote locations where she investigates climate change and the ecologies of oil and water. She works the findings into multi-layered videos by connecting the micropolitics on the ground with a theoretical macro level, proposing a reflexive exploration of planetary and videographic organization.

President Trump’s executive order on refugees and immigrants has profound and long-term global implications, not just to Muslim majority societies and U.S. social and political life. The purpose of this teach-in is to inform students and colleagues about the international legal dimension, to humanize the impact of the ban on people all over the world, and to think comparatively across the Middle East, South Asia, and Latin America..
