Ruth Wiesenfeld's artistic language moves between composition, performance and the visual arts.
Her work comprises conventionally as well as experimentally notated scores, sculpture-objects, installations and videos. In recent years she has been working with the Ensemble Ukho in Kiev, the String Quartet of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and with the vocal ensemble PHØNIX16 (Guest Composer 2013/2014). Her visual works have been displayed in galleries as well as at film and Sound Art festivals. Ruth Wiesenfeld lives with her husband and two children in Berlin. Her studies in composition brought her a PhD from the Dartington College of Arts in England. Before studying composition, she studied choreography at the European Dance Development Centre in Arnheim. Since 2001, she has been teaching at the Kurt Singer Institute of the Hanns Eisler College of Music.
