Barbara Marcel (Rio de Janeiro, 1985) is an artist and filmmaker, interested in the cultural roots of nature and the problematic heritage of colonial imagery. In her current artistic research PhD at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar, Marcel investigates the essayfilm as a historiographical tool for decolonial thinking with and through images, with the Botanical Garden Berlin-Dahlem and its tropical plants being her current material of study. Barbara Marcel is a scholarship holder of the Heinrich Böll Foundation and lives in Berlin.
