As an artist Anke Eckardt realizes installations based on sound including ultrasound and infrasound in interdependence with visual space and objects. Within her research she develops novel material and investigates the ambiguity of acoustic metamaterial. As professor for sound she teaches auditive culture against the background of aesthetic, cultural, technical and political conditions of physical and medial space which merge in the way how spatial situations are audiovisually perceived (cf. Sonic Experience).


From 2001-2003 she was head of the sound department of  the venue Podewil of the Berliner Kulturveranstaltungs-GmbH, in charge of audio concepts and audio engineering for media, music, dance and performance festivals such as e.g. Transmediale, Tanz im August, reich und berühmt, x-tract Chicago, Klangkrieg. 2003-2005 she worked as a freelance audio engineer for Maria am Ostbahnhof, Freunde der Guten Musik, Berliner Festspiele among others and toured with Chicks On Speed, Planningtorock and Radian. From 2004 – 2007 she was head of production for the MUSIKZONE at Volksbühne, 2008 she co-produced TUNED CITY festival, 2009 she was head of production of The Knot festival, both in public spaces in Berlin. Her involvement in CTM festival started in 2003, 2004-2010 she was head of production/sound, from 2011-2014 she worked as technical director for CTM festival.         

Adding to her educational background in audio engineering (completed training at the SAE in Berlin in 1998) Anke Eckardt received a Master of Arts in Sound Studies at the Berlin University of the Arts in 2010, where she studied with Sam Auinger, Holger Schulze and Sabine Sanio. 2011-2013 she received a stipend of the Einstein Foundation as a fellow of the Graduate School of the Arts and the Sciences at the University of the Arts Berlin, mentored by Christina Kubisch. 2012 her artist book SONIC SPACES was published by Revolver Publishing.[1]

In 2014 she became a research and artistic assistant at the Department of Visual Arts & Architecture within the School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Landscape Design at the University of Kassel[2]. There she founded the research and prototyping laboratory ‘SOUND lab’ which is shared by both students and academic staff for the exploration of sonic phenomena and their auditive perception. As part of the transdisciplinary platform BAU KUNST ERFINDEN[3], Eckardt is working on various collaborative projects as well as on her doctoral degree in the field of experimental material research with sound.

In 2017 Anke Eckardt was appointed Professor for Sound at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne[4]. In 2018, together with Prof. Dr. Lilian Haberer and Karin Lingnau, she initiated the transdisciplinary research project Materiathek – a material archive in the fringes of the arts.
