Katharina Ziemke studied fine arts at the  Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts in Paris. Originally trained as a painter, she now works in a variety of forms of artistic expression, such as sculpture, theatre, performance and video art. Her work has shown internationally, in venues in New York, London, Paris, Lyon, Copenhagen, Luxembourg, and Vilnius. Ziemke collaborates regularly with the Schaubühne Theatre and German director Thomas Ostermeier, for whom she creates wall drawings and live painting-performances (for his productions, ‘An Enemy of the People, ‘The Seagull’, ‘Professor Bernhardi’). In this context, she developed the idea of ‘performing’ watercolor paintings in public, filming their evolution. [Professional Website]
