Steffi Weismann, born in 1967 in Zurich, attended the the Zurich School of Design and studied costume and set design as well as experimental music and performance from 1989 at the Berlin University of the Arts. In the mid-1990s she began integrating the medium of video into her solo performances and exploring the interactions between language, music and new communication media.
Her interest in FLUXUS brought her together with the vocal performance group ‘Die Maulwerker’, with whom she has given concerts internationally as a composer-performer. She is the co-founder of several artist groups, independent art spaces and event series in Berlin: KuLe (1990-2001), ex machinis (1995-2001), Labor Sonor (2000-2005) and Fernwärme - The Making of Performing Arts (2002-2007). 2005 she began to collaborate with the sound artist Georg Klein (interventions in public space) and the musician Annette Krebs (audiovisual duo "telefon"). Since 2009 she is teaching at the University of Fine Arts in Braunschweig focusing on the connection of performance and sound art.
