Practicing martial arts for around 20 years, she explores Taiji as a basis to examine its practical and philosophical integration of body, soul and Spirit - and thus its potential for art. In addition to her own artistic practice, she organizes events for other artists and musicians and passes on her experience in martial arts to children and grown ups.
She organizes Blackbox Poetry, which investigates poetry from a multimedia perspective through music, word and image.
Bianca Hein is a PhD student at CAU Kiel (Prof. Dr. Sonia Klimek). She investigates the typology of contemporary video poetry.
