Gabi Schaffner

Gabi Schaffner works as an interdisciplinary traveling artist and curator within the fields of sound art, radio, and visionary documentation. Central to her activities are communication, non-hierarchic perspectives and sharing. Schaffner's approach is owed to ethnographic practice: Taking notes, academic research, assembling talks and interviews, documentation in photography and audio recordings. Writing and speaking form another integral part of her work with an emphasis on experimental narrative structures and alternative modes of knowledge distribution: cut-up collages, magic realism, performance lectures, radio shows. - Excerpted from
