Cristiana Cott Negoescu

Born: 24.07.1991 in Bucharest, Romania

Living and working in Düsseldorf, Germany


I am a multimedia artist, or better said, a conceptographer. My main point of focus is performance art, followed by video and photography.

I concentrate my attention on social-political-spiritual matters, giving them a context in live or recorded actions. Through these artistic actions, I give examples of pondering concerns that I have experienced directly, or through other people.
