Anna Stern

After studying free art at the Münster Art Academy and a master's degree in Art in Context at the UdK Berlin, Anna Stern makes, mediates and explores performance art. For many years, the focus of her artistic work has been on sound and language. In collaboration with guitarist and composer Michael Kolberg, she sets u.s. contemporary poetry to music and performs it in the form of performance concerts with live video projections. In 2019, the CD 'Songs of Life and Death' by the duo kolberg+stern with a tribute to the American poet Anne Sexton was published by Aisthesis. The a cappella trio Babel 3, which she founded in 2020, improvisationally explores the range from pure vocal sound to sung text. In September 2021, the trio's first concert was performed under the programmatic title 'From Sound to Word' at the Jugendkirche Münster.
