Astrid Busch studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg and graduated as a master student of Katharina Grosse at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee. The starting point of her works are mostly architectural designs, which she examines for their sensual perceptibility and effect. The motifs are transformed, changed in dimensions and then translated into space on various image carriers, linking media and time levels.
