Born 1948 in Bremen. Christina Kubisch belongs to the first generation of sound artists. Trained as a composer, she has artistically developed such techniques as magnetic induction to realize her installations. Since 1986 she has added light as an artistic element to her work with sound. Christina Kubisch's work displays an artistic development which is often described as "synthesis of arts" - the discovery of acoustic space and the dimension of time in the visual arts on one hand, and a redefinition of relationships between material and form in music on the other. Christina studied painting and composition in Hamburg, Zurich and Milan (with Franco Donatoni), and Darmstadt (with Mauricio Kagel).

Christina´s work has been presented worldwide since 1974 with solo exhibitions and performances in galleries and museums in Europe, USA, Australia, Japan and South America. Christina has has lectured and taught in numerous institutions and is Professor for Audiovisual Art at the Academy of Fine Arts, Saarbrücken, and a member of the Akademie der Künste Berlin since 1997.
