STEFFI WEISMANN - ABOUT

Performance and Sound Artist. Lives in Berlin.

Steffi Weismann crosses the border between visual art and music. Her focus is on audio performances, mixed media compositions, interactive sound installations and interventions in public spaces. Her working methods and the structure of her works are dialogical at their core and reference the fluxus tradition. Weismann connects bodies, things and sounds in space. The settings of her works are performative, combining analog and digital means. In recent years, the transfer of tactile experiences into sonic processes has played a central role.

Since her studies at the Berlin University of the Arts, she has maintained an international concert schedule with the Ensemble Maulwerker. Weismann has received numerous prizes and scholarships and has presented her solo works in South Africa, New Zealand, Portugal, Turkey, the United States and Switzerland, among other countries. She works in many collaborations, including with Annette Krebs, Georg Klein, Özgür Erkök Moroder, Çiğdem Üçüncü, and Janine Eisenächer, with whom she has curated the series Ready Making - on performative sound art at Errant Sound since 2019.
