INDEPENDENT ART AND CURATORIAL PROJECTS
2014 - current: TIMESPECIFIC.com, Founder, Curator & Participant Artist
Timespecific is an on-line platform that creates new opportunities to exhibit art, film, music and poetry. Instead of being site-specific to a gallery or another site, timespecific travels to meet with an international spectrum of Artist to investigate the practice of art making itself.

Dec. 2013: N2NM Exchange, international Art Trade, Santa Fe, NM
N2NM Exchange was a cultural project initiated to create an environment for active interaction, support and exchange between the community of Santa Fe, the U.S. and abroad. Part gift exchange, part happening, the event featured a trading station for artwork, books, services, resources and items of cultural value, between local and international artists and the public. Artists, collectors and others are encouraged to bring items to exchange at the event, with the goal of fostering greater support for artists and providing greater access to art for the general public.

2009-10: 13 MONTH, artist residency at Zen Center in NYC and NM
For a period of 13 Month, the artist lived in Buddhist community, shared meals, participated in daily meditation schedule including week long silent meditations and intensive seminars of mind and brain connections. During this time, Kille documented her 'inner journey'. The Photographs, videos and works on paper are intimate portraits of herself and immediate surroundings.
 
1994-96: Kopula, Television Broadcast, Berlin, Germany
A group of woman artists’ presenting short videos in-between commercials on TV. The intention was to interrupt the viewing habits and create awareness of consumer culture.

1992-94: 241 Magazine, Berlin, Germany
A collection of 'art pages', articles, drawings, etc. published as a Fanzine for Berlin. The intention was to create a forum, a media for artists in the changing environment of Berlin. We distributed the magazine in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne in Germany and New York, NY (USA)

1989-90: B. Friedrich, Bar-Gallery - Berlin, Germany
Shortly after the fall I organized together with Nina Fischer a bar / gallery as a forum for artists and art: as well as meeting place between East and West Germany in the new center of Berlin.
