In 2019, the Botín Centre celebrates the 25th anniversary of Itineraries, the annual exhibition that displays the work of the artists awarded the Botín Foundation’s Visual Arts Grant each year, which has been running since 1993.
Katja Heitmann (1987, Germany) operates on the interface between dance and visual arts, performance and installation. In her work she investigates what moves man in the present era. In 2016 Katja won the Prijs van de Nederlandse Dansdagen (Dutch Dance Days Award).
Katja Heitmann’s choreographic work consists of emphatic aesthetics, in sharp contrast to human fallibility. Her radical-minimalist and hyper-formed visual language confronts the viewer with a ferocious sea of insights. A field of tension that is constantly recurring in her work.
