FRANZISKA WINDISCH

WORKS | ABOUTPUBLICATIONS | CONTACT






Franziska Windisch is an artist and lecturer. Her work moves between the areas of performance, text, composition and installation. She composes scores for performative acts which interrogate notions of trace, medium, sound and listening and which she then incorporates in linguistic, sculptural and installative arrangements. Her work has been presented internationally in art spaces and at festivals. She has taught at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, European Postgraduate in Arts in Sound (KASK) Gent and Sound Studies and Sonic Arts (UDK) Berlin, at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies, Justus Liebig University Gießen.  and at Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig (Klangskulptur und Klanginstallation)
