Franziska Windisch

Franziska Windisch is an artist and lecturer based in Brussels, Belgium. She studied at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne. 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. Situations that illustrate transformative processes and have unforeseen or irreversible results are key to her artistic practice. Her work has been presented internationally in art spaces and at festivals, including Klangkunstfestival Intraregionale, Centrale for Contemporary Arts Brussels (BE), Performatik (BE), Tuned City Messene (GR), RIXC Art Science Festival (LV), MU (NL) Arnolfini(UK), Edith-Russ Haus für Medienkunst (DE), Brückenmusik 17 (DE), FILE Festival(BR).
