Born

Biography/General


works and lives in Cologne.

Christina Lissmann is an international multimedia artist, filmmaker and painter working and living in Germany. Her artistic work is situated at the interface between art, science and philosophy. Her work reflects the current discourse of social tensions and the related questions about the survival of human conditions in the age of CRISPR gene editing, transhumanism, AI and virtual reality. As a student of Sigmar Polke, she worked for seven years as his assistant in his studio, studied philosophy, art history and ethnology at the University of Cologne and worked for public broadcasting as an author and director of documentaries on art and philosophy. And now Christina Lissmann has finally returned to painting in order to find an artistic expression concerning the contradictions of todays society, thinking and the fragility of beauty.
