Katharina Bévand is a sound artist based in Berlin. She creates atmospheric site-specific sound installations and performances. Her works explore the acoustics of architecture and spatiality, composing environments which invite us to a physical experience as wandering bodies. She is inspired by unconventional spaces like factory buildings or ruins, delving into the politics of space in a physical and conceptual sense. She studied Fine Art in Spain, Brazil, and South Korea and the Master Sound Studies at Udk Berlin. In 2017 she was awarded an honorary mention by the »bonn hoeren – sonotopia« contest of the Beethoven Foundation for Arts and Culture Bonn. She is board member of the Association for New Music in Berlin since 2018 and part of the Intermission Collective. Internationally she exhibited at Dystopia Festival for Sound Art , the Space21 Festival, Autonomous Region Kurdistan in Iraq, and, Madou Sugar Factory Art Triennial  in Tainan, Taiwan. In 2020 she was part of the exhibition Infinité ∞² for Eliane Radigue  at Gallery Weißer Elefant in Berlin along with Carsten Nicolai and Robert Lippok, and a resident at Darb1718 for the Project Listen to Cairo  together with sound artist Jutta Ravenna in Egypt.
