Christina Kubisch
Christina Kubisch was born in Bremen, Germany in 1948. She studied painting, music (flute and composition) and electronics in Hamburg, Graz, Zürich and Milan, where she graduated. After having worked as a flautist playing contemporary music she started to perform her own pieces, often combined with video. Since the end of the 1970s she has focused on producing site-specific sound installations and sound sculptures. Besides her many electroacoustic compositions she has written for instrumental ensembles and has produced numerous audio- works for radio.

Kubisch has received many national and international grants and awards, such as the Award of the German Industrial Association (BDI) (1988), composition grant of the city of Berlin (1995 and 2000), the Heidelberger Künstlerinnenpreis award for composition (1999), Carl Djerassi Honorary Fellowship, California (2000), IASPIS residency grant, Stockholm (2002), honorary award of the German Sound Art Award (2008), Ars Electronica honorary mention (2008), SR Media Art Award Saarbrücken (2009), City Sound artist, Bonn (2013), stipend of the Centre for Composers VICC, Visby Gotland (2015), and the Karl Sczuka Prize for radio art (2016).

Since 1974 she has presented solo exhibitions in Europe, USA, Australia, Japan and South America and has participated in numerous international festivals and group exhibitions.Christina Kubisch has been a visiting professor in Maastricht, Paris, Oxford and Berlin. From 1994 to 2013 she was Professor for Audiovisual Art at the Academy of Fine Arts, Saarbrücken, where she founded and ran the Department of Sound Art. Her music has been released with various labels such as Cramps Records, Edition RZ, ampersand, semishigure, Die Schachtel, Olof Bright, AA Records, Important Records, Gruenrekorder and others. Christina Kubisch is a member of the Akademie der Künste Berlin since 1997. Kubisch belongs to the first generation of sound artists. Trained as a composer, she has artistically developed such techniques as magnetic induction to realise her installations. Since 1986 she has added light as an artistic element to her work with sound. Her work displays an artistic development which is often described as a “synthesis of arts” – the discovery of acoustic space and the dimension of time in the visual arts on one hand, and a redefinition of relationships between material and form in music on the other.
