FRANZISKA WINDISCH

WORKS | ABOUT | COOPERATIONS | PUBLICATIONS | NEWS | CONTACT






Franziska Windisch (*1983, DE) lives and works in Cologne and Brussels. Operating in both sound art and visual art, her work moves between the areas of performance, text, composition and installation. She develops scores for performances and actions, that often address the notion of the trace, the medium, the finite and the unknown. Creating situations in which transformatory processes become tangible or setups with unpredictable or irreversible results are essential aspects of her artistic practice.
