Benoît Maubrey (b. 1952, US), moved to Berlin in 1979 and lives and works since 1990 in Baitz (Brandenburg). Already in the 1980s he developed electronic, performative instruments, as well as interactive loudspeaker sculptures for public spaces.
In his non-mobile sculptural work he frequently uses the visual impact of public monuments and echoes their forms by using modern technology and electronics. For his creations Maubrey recycles “found” electronics. Since 1982 he has been conceiving and creating interactive sculptures in public spaces. In most cases the sculptures interact with their environment: quite often they function as “Speakers Corner” where the public can express themselves “live”.
