Anne Müller is working as performing  and visual artist.

Grown up in East Berlin Anne Müller developed a deep sence for fragility and unexpected changes, sensitised for the disappearing house within the radical break. A passionate, meticulous and amorous observer. Laying open, little, sometimes hidden stories, precarious and strong, ironic and pure. In absurd gestures she consistently appears in her video works as social surrogate projection surface.

Her Performances questioning cautious but incessantly standards, streched, shortened, shifted, uncomfortable in its visualization. Conceptual analysis tryes to transform the going on inquirer to a poetic intensity and disturbance. Performance infiltrates drwaing, video enters language.

Anne Müller studied Musicology, Ethno Musicology at the “Freie Universität Berlin” and audio-visual Media Science at “Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen Konrad Wolf, Potsdam Babelsberg”. She played concert tours with the “Goethe Institutes” in Brazil, New Zealand and Latvia and her international art academy project “IAM international art moves” leads her to academies in Hong Kong, Zagreb, Istanbul, Wroclaw, Beirut, Brunei Darussalam, Granada and Cyprus. With “büro müller” she is responsible for project realizations like 2018/2919 the “Design Award of the State of Saxony” of the Saxon State Ministry for Economic Affairs.
