Christiane Wittig

Christiane Wittig, was born in Germany, graduated as a Media Artist from the Bauhaus-University Weimar in 2002. She continued to develop her artworks in Sydney, Australia and Brussels, Belgium where she did postgraduate study in Art Media and Design at Transmedia (Sint-Lukas University, Brussels). In 2006 she was awarded a scholarship from the Else-Heiliger Fond (EHF) at the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation in Berlin, Germany. Her work has been exhibited in various private and corporate collections in Belgium and Germany. Wittig lives and works in Brussels, Belgium and Chemnitz, Germany. From 2010 until 2014 she works as a guest docent in Transmedia (postgraduate Program in Arts, Media and Design) at the LUCA School of Arts in Brussels. Since 2015 she lives in Leipzig Germany. Wittig’s projects include interactive media installations as well as film, sculpture and photography. Her interactive compositions bring the spectator into the fragile cycle of emergence and misdemeanours. In the interactive installations, Christiane Wittig has produced to date, the body and technology are prominent themes, as they relate to the concepts of preservation, endurance and fragility.
