Niki Korth

I'm an artist, writer, activist, tree-lover, and community organizer. I work in the name of freedom of thought, which begets freedom of speech and freedom of expression. It's a long road toward freedom, easier for some than for others. We need to build it together. 

Together with Clémence de Montgolfier, I co-founded The Big Conversation Space (TBCS), an art, research, and consulting organization based in Paris and San Francisco that acts as a participatory production platform for books, media, and games involving free speech, art, technology, politics, philosophy, and the occult. TBCS has exhibited and lectured internationally at venues including Palais Tokyo (Paris), TCB Gallery (Mellbourne, Australia), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), and Human Resources (Los Angeles).

I'm also an advocate for trees and sustainable urban planning, and work in marketing and operations at DeepRoot Green Infrastructure, a San Francisco–based company that helps to bring the technology of the forest into the city. 

In the spirit of McLuhan but in the age of the Internet – I believe that we all own the message, humans as much as plant life. But the medium may have a mind of its own.
