Yoav Pasovsky

In view of the political and social developments, this artist asks himself whether Germany is a safe country for his family. Born in 1980 in Haifa, Israel, where he also grew up, he emigrated when he was 23 to Berlin and started a family there. His great-grandparents on his father\’s side fled from Munich to Palestine in 1935. He had never been able to understand as much how his great-grandparents felt back than until now.
Yoav Panofsky learned to play the piano as a child, and he started composing when he was a youth, and he finished his studies in composition at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin) under, among others, Daniel Ott and Walter Zimmermann. His works are primarily electronic-acoustic and are performed at festivals of new music (ISCM World New Music Days; Donaueschinger Musiktage) and broadcast on the radio. He has been collaborating for many years with Ensemble Modern Akademie; Ensemble Adapter; Ensemble U3; United Berlin; Quartet New Generation; and Zafraan Ensemble. This is the second time he will be a guest artist at the Munich Biennale.
