Sigrid Hackenberg was born on January 3rd, 1960, in Barcelona, Spain, to German and Spanish parents. An interdisciplinary artist and philosopher based in New York, she is an Assistant Professor of Media Philosophy at the European Graduate School, Saas-Fee, Wallis, Switzerland. Her scholarly research interests lie within Continental philosophy and feminism. Recent essays have focused on such topics as the philosophy of language, the act of reading and writing, and ‘ethics as first philosophy.’ She is the author of a forthcoming study on the writings of G.W.F. Hegel and Emmanuel Levinas (Atropos Press). A book focusing on the topic of language and the feminine is currently in preparation. Hackenberg’s latest video and sound installation, focusing on the subject of the Spanish Civil War and created in collaboration with Dolores R. A. Hackenberg, was recently commissioned by theMuseo Extremeño e Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporáneo (MEIAC), Badajoz, Spain.
