Caroline Bergvall is an award-winning poet and sound artist working internationally across many print- sound- and performance-based media, with her work often focusing on the interdisciplinary and the multi-modal. Included in this is a strong focus on multilingual identities and the histories and contexts concealed and contained within language. Her published works include several chapbooks such as Strange Passage (1993) and several book length works such as the trilogy exploring medievalist language: Meddle English (2011), Drift (2014) and Alisoun Sings (2019). Bergvall’s work has also been collected in several anthologies including The New Concrete: Visual Poetry in the 21st Century (2015). Along with Laynie Browne, Teresa Carmody and Vanessa Place, Bergvall was an editor of the 2012 anthology I’ll Drown My Book: Conceptual Writing By Women. Bergvall has performed or made installation works in many museums and exhibitions worldwide, including Tate Modern, MOMA and the Whitney Biennial. Bergvall has taught at many universities throughout her career, most recently as a visiting professor at Kings College London. She is the recipient of many awards, including a Cholmondeley Award for her book Drift, a Bogliasco Fellowship, and Bergvall was the first ever recipient of the art literary prize Prix Littéraire Bernard Heidsieck-Centre Pompidou. Born in Hamburg, Germany, Bergvall grew up in Switzerland, Norway, France, the United States and England. She studied at Université de la Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris, received an MPhil from the University of Warwick, Britain, and a doctorate from the Dartington College of Arts. She currently resides in London.
