Veronica Mockler is an artist and researcher of participatory dialogue, who transforms the act of listening to others into an art form. Her work has unfolded within diverse settings in Canada and abroad, spanning from curated art spaces to government offices, community organizations and universities.
Politically collaborative, her research takes on various shapes, including public addresses, listening scores, unlikely interviews, documentary essays, new media performances, video installations, workshops and gatherings.
Informed by oral history, documentary tradition, and radical working-class education, Mockler's intersectional work strives to redefine who can participate in the institutions of art, citizenship, and knowledge.
Her dialogic arts-based research focuses on the challenge of institutional inclusion and working-class solidarity amid ecological crisis polarization.
