Hannah Weinberger

Hannah Weinberger

For her first major exhibition in French-speaking Switzerland, Hannah Weinberger (Switzerland, *1988) creates a custom-made work for the largest floor (le Rez) of the Kunsthalle.

Hannah Weinberger belongs to a generation of artists who use digital technologies pragmatically, viewing them as tools rather than as objects of either veneration or opprobrium. Through her sound art and works composed on her computer, the artist creates immersive installations which, on the surface, are nothing more than sound distribution systems. It is the viewers who generate the sensory experience simply by drifting and moving through this constantly changing environment. Hannah Weinberger is also known for her collaborative works, both with fellow artists and those outside the art world. For example, her performance pieces at the Liste Basel 2013 featured a local street panpipe player.
