COOL FOR YOU
Artist, author and music producer Vika Kirchenbauer has been releasing experimental sound and video works under the name COOL FOR YOU since 2015. Her current album ‘Communal Mess’ was released in May 2019 and uses sacred harp-choral singing as initial material for electronic alienation. Kirchenbauer’s works have sparked the attention of magazines like The Wire, FACT Magazine, AQNB, Flash Art, Berlin Art Link and Norient and have been shown internationally in exhibitions and at festivals, including at transmediale (Berlin), the Donaufestival Krems, the Images Festival (Toronto), the ICA Artists’ Film Biennial (London) and the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, where she was awarded the prize for the best contribution to the German competition in 2016. Kirchenbauer was also represented at PACT Zollverein in 2011 as part of the Atelier series.
