Art historian Anne Zeitz looks at artist and composer Christina Kubisch’s trajectory from the 1970s onwards. Zeitz carefully maps out the development of her experiments with the limits of aurality, questioning the materiality of architectural sites and their histories, in their capacity to modulate sonic, visual and tactile perception.
