Beate Linne (DE/HU) was born in 1967 and she is currently based in Goslar and Budapest. She studied Fine Art, Architecture, Pedagogy, as well as German language and literature in the University of Kassel, Fachhochschule Hildesheim and University of Hildesheim. Since 2007 she has exhibited and performed internationally, given workshops and co-organized performance festivals.

Linnes' work investigate core issues of life and the condition of being a human through creating live-actions with her body. Her performances often test the corporeal and mental limits of herself, questioning the social manners and learned norms of behaviour.

By using her body as a tool of creating powerful live-images, Linne considers performance as an opportunity to express herself in her ongoing examination into the ideas of freedom and conventionality of thought. At the heart of her work is an encounter and exchange between people: a possibility to initiate alternative and bold thinking processes.
