Christina Krys Huber live and work in Berlin, Germany and Basel, Switzerland. Their artistic practice includes painting, text, video and performance. In it, they investigate contemporary social, political and mental influences that shape experiences of longing, memory and protest. They are particularly interested in physical and sensory aspects and the ways in which these determine our perception.
