city sound artist bonn 2023

The Beethoven Foundation for Art and Culture of the Federal City of Bonn has appointed the artist duo Roswitha von den Driesch and Jens-Uwe Dyffort, who live and work in Berlin, as City Sound Artists Bonn 2023. In close exchange with biologists from the Nees Institute at the University of Bonn and the CRC1211 research network, they will investigate the development of plants in extremely water-scarce environments. Their artistic research forms the basis for the creation of new sound installations, Roswitha von den Driesch and Jens-Uwe Dyffort will realise in Antofagasta, the capital of the Atacama Desert in Chile, and after that in Bonn at the Beethovenfest.
