Hearing and listening are the themes of his performances, that are shown worldwide. From 2012 until 2020 he was Guest professor for Sound Studies at the Universität der Künste Berlin.

HEW is a project space by Elana Katz in cooperation with Gallery KWADRAT, founded in Berlin in March 2020. HEW’s activities are reactionary creative and critical experimentation, including site-specific installations, actions, and discourse — both in the context of public events and the intimacy of studio work. Launched at the beginning of Berlin’s COVID-19 lock-down, in the context of the current pandemic HEW functions as a dystopian sanctuary created by artists in surreal and uncertain times. Founded at Falckensteinstraße 24 in Berlin Kreuzberg, HEW as a conceptual platform operates in a transitory manner. This House will thus in the future occupy different spaces, working in a site-specific manner at each location.
