SdMKLm is the studio practice of Stefano de Martino and Karen Lohrmann. As comments on developing stories and through different media they address spaces in transformation, cultural manifestations, and resultant landscapes. Working in collaboration since the early 2000s, they exhibit and publish internationally. Their ongoing work cycle Waiting Land was one of the conceptual segments of the FRAC Orléans Biennale, Years of Solitude. They currently work on Enduring Temporariness, a part fiction part documentary visual and sound essay on venture landscapes; and on Ways of Cooking, a reflection on food production.  

SdMKLm run the platform Urban States, Correspondents edition, and the testing ground Bay of Mars. Along with a growing number of essays, they have released three publications, Update: All Possible Worlds [2008], How we spent it [2009], and Waiting Land [2017]. The work of SdMKLm is recognized and supported by awards, research grants, and project-based residencies. [Home]
