Sabrina Basten is a visual artist based in Berlin. She obtained a diploma from AKI Academy of Fine Arts in Enschede NL (2004).
Her art work concerns a visual-spatial research, which focuses on the principle of physical intelligence, i.e. the relationship between the physical and mental interpretation of a space. This research takes the form of installations and drawings in which Basten seeks to use tactile and visual effects to increase the spatial consciousness of the visitor and to provide him or her with a total experience that appeals both to the senses and reason.
Basten has received several grants from the Dutch government (BKVB startstipendium) and the Rotterdam Art Council (project grant DKC and O&O) to realize her projects. The artwork Blüte was commissioned as a permanent installation in the entrance hall of Laurens-Cadenza in Rotterdam (NL). Her works are part of private and public collections, for example 'DOK art library Delft'. Sabrina held artist residencies at: CFA in India (2003), Bookville in the United Kingdom (2005), Lokaal 01 in Belgium (2006), and Weise 7 in Germany (2011).
Sabrina Basten is the co-founder of the collective Roger 10-4, exploring forms of wearable electromagnetic field sniffing devices. Roger 10-4 has conducted workshops throughout Europe. She is also the co-founder of the writers-blog
The Secret Dairy Of Somebody Else (2014-ongoing) and Conversas Berlin (2016-ongoing)
Basten is a frequent freelancer for the museum Kunsthal in Rotterdam (2008-17).
