Samuel Perea-Díaz is a sound artist, exhibition designer, and curator based in Berlin. He holds a degree in Architecture from the University of Seville and a MA in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts from the Berlin University of the Arts.
His installations explore spaces of mixed realities while focusing on sound. His artwork blends and moves between sonic activism, architecture, and virtual sonic landscapes, creating installations and sound-focused objects which engage with sonification, relocation of sound, field recording, and VR. Recent exhibitions include shows at GlogauAIR (2022), Tieranatomisches Theater (2022), 48H Neukölln (2021), SoundsAbout (2020-2022), CLB Gallery (2020), and the Akademie der Künste (2019).
Perea-Díaz’s creative practice also intertwines artistic and academic research, which focuses on mapping sonic environments. Since 2019, Samuel is a lecturer at Humboldt University, where he has taught different seminars about sound and curating. Samuel’s independent research has evolved into different curatorial projects, which include exhibitions such as ‘Listening to Listening’ at 48 Hours Neukölln and ‘Ocaña. Der Engel, der in der Qual singt’ at the Schwules Museum in Berlin.
