Katharina Bévand is a sound artist based in Berlin. Her artistic practice moves between sonic performances and installations, which explore the acoustics of architecture, objects and their relation to the human body, movement, and our surroundings. She explores spaces with special acoustic qualities, such as factory buildings or other architectonic sites, creating experiential sonic environments.
She studied Fine Arts between Spain, Brazil, and South Korea and completed the Master Sound Studies at Udk Berlin. Now she is part of the Intermission Collective as well as a board member of the Association for New Music in Berlin. In 2017 she was awarded an honorary mention by the »bonn hoeren – sonotopia« contest of the Beethoven Foundation for Arts and Culture Bonn. Her work has been exhibited internationally, among others, at Dystopia Festival for Sound Art (Berlin), the Space21 Festival (Autonomous Region Kurdistan in Iraq) or the 2019 Madou Sugar Factory Art Triennial in Tainan (Taiwan). Currently, she is a resident at Darb1718 in Cairo, Egypt, with a stipend from the Berlin Senate.
