The MAIA program (Master of Interior Architecture, HEAD – Genève) invite you to a series of conferences, called Creative Industries. They are held by established professionals and seek to give access to skills that can be useful in a career as an interior architect.
Hannah Weinberger (born 1988 in Filderstadt, lives and works in Basel) studied at the Zurich University of the Arts, where she graduated in 2013 with a Master of Fine Arts (specialization in Medial Arts). Collaboration and participation are hallmarks of Hannah Weinberger’s artistic practice. Her work draws on the potential of sound and the properties of spaces that serve to foster collective gatherings or assign a performative role to spectators. Her discrete interventions transform the exhibition space into a true experimental platform, allowing the audience to shape their own environment: a tailored experience within a work in constant evolution.
From 2011-2013, she co-directed the Elaine project space in the courtyard of the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Basel with Tenzing Barshee, Nikola Dietrich and Scott Cameron Weaver. She has had solo exhibitions at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Geneve; Kunstverein Braunschweig; Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe; Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Hamburg; Kunsthaus Bregenz; MIT List Center for Visual Arts, Cambridge, MA; FriArt, Fribourg; Swiss Institute, New York; and Kunsthalle Basel, among others. Her work has also been presented internationally.
Since 2016 she is a lecturer at the Art Institute at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts /Northwestern Switzerland, and since 2013 she is a board member of Kunsthalle Basel.
