Katharina Bévand (Munich, 1988) is a sound artist currently based in Berlin. After having studied Fine Arts at the universities of Spain, South Korea and Brazil, she completed a Master in Sound Studies at the University of Arts in Berlin. Her artistic practice moves between performance and installation and explores the acoustics of architecture, objects and their relation to the human body. In 2017 she received an honorary mention at the sonotopia-bonn hoeren european contest for sound art. She has exhibited and performed in unusual spaces like the Wasserspeicher, a former crematory at Südstern, the Bärenzwinger in Berlin or the old Hammam belonging to the citadel of Erbil in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan, as well as other renowned venues like the Pergamon Museum of Islamic Art or the Sudhaus at the KINDL-Center for Contemporary Art Berlin.
