Claudia Kappenberg

Claudia lectures in Performance and Visual Arts at the University of Brighton with a specialism in movement research, performance, screen based practices, installation and critical theory. She is Course leader for the MA Performance and Visual Practices. Claudia trained in Modern Dance, Butoh and Movement Analysis and danced professionally in Europe and New Zealand before coming to London in 1991. She completed an MA Fine Art/Film and Video at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 1998 and taught at Central Saint Martins and London Guildhall University until 2002. She also worked freelance as videographer for Tate Modern, Tate Britain and other arts organisations and documented work for artists such as Christian Marclay, Joan Jonas and Bruce Nauman.

As an artist she draws on a background of dance as well as visual arts and film to create minimal choreographies which examine patterns of the everyday. The work is often developed for particular sites or reconfigured in their relocation to other sites and exhibited in the form of live interventions, gallery based performances or installations. The work has been shown in Europe, the United States and the Middle East. Claudia is o-founder of the White Market project. She runs an International Screendance Network with UK and US-based scholars and artists and is Editor of the International Journal of Screendance. She co-curated the What If… Festival in London in 2010.
