Anna Zett


Anna Zett is an artist and writer, born in Leipzig, living in Berlin. Once trained in theory she is now working across the disciplines of cinema, radio, installation and performance. Playfully engaged with the limits of physical presence, her research and practice approach the history of science and technology as a source of trauma, drama and comedy. Zett's video and audio work has been presented at museums, galleries, festivals and universities. Within the performing arts she has recently co-written and co-directed a radio play that aired on many German-speaking public radio channels, and is currently co-hosting a participatory dance show based at Hebbel am Ufer Berlin.
