Mimi Kunz

Mimi Kunz is a visual artist and poet who portrays movement as an expression of liveliness. She grew curious about the body as a universal mother tongue while staying in Thailand in 2006-2007, where she was an an alphabet at first, and amazed by how much we can share through movement and gestures. She studied sociolinguistics, literature, translation and art history at Albert-Ludwigs University Freiburg, Germany, and Painting at the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe, who awarded her a postgraduation scholarship. Her interest for visual languages took her to residencies and exhibitions in South Korea and Vietnam. Her writing was published in Ellipsis, MoonPark Review, and others, nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and shortlisted for the Bridport Prize. She was born in Germany and now lives in Brussels with her young family, where she founded Something Beautiful, a festival for visual art and poetry.
