Paulina Brunner was born in Mannheim in 1995. She lives and works in Halle an der Saale.
In her works, she explores the relationship between the visible and the expressible. Her ways of expressions include the artist's book, video, dance, and performance. Paulina Brunner's works are represented in both private and public collections (Klingspor-Museum Offenbach, KOLUMBA Cologne).
From 2016 to 2021, she studied at the Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle specializing in book art and at the Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo, Norway, focusing on drawing and printmaking. Since 2002, she has been attending ballet and contemporary dance classes.
