Heike Fiedler © Mathilde Missioneiro
Heike Fiedler (b. 1963) is a writer, performer and visual and sound poet. She grew up in Düsseldorf, and now lives and works in Geneva. Since 2000 she has been performing her texts unplugged and/or with laptop, modul8, realtime electronics and paper. At the interface of orality and literacy, many of her texts play with multi-linguality as an expression of circulation of signs and of interculturality vs. intermediality.
Since 2000 she has been taking part in international literature and poetry festivals, readings, and music festivals. She runs studios in the areas of performance writing and sound poetry and has herself attended workshops run by the legendary sound poet Henri Chopin (SfD) and by Nicolas Sordet for applied electro-acoustics. She took part in the research project Autorinnen und Autoren im öffentlichen Auftritt. Selbstverständnis und Inszenierung (Authors in public appearance: self-understanding and staging) (HKB, SLI).
Her first novel is due in Autumn 2019. She also designs interventions and installations in the public space and has had many writing residencies (Fondation Ledig-Rowohlt, L’Arc Romainmôtier, New Delhi). For her TexTraumprojekte she is funded by Pro Helvetia and City and Canton of Geneva. She is a member of the ensemble InsubMetaOrchestra and the PEN Centre Suisse romand committee.
