After studying architecture at Berlin’s University of the Arts, Uta von Debschitz (45) worked as an architect for many years. She then got a grant to study culture journalism, also at the University of the Arts. Since 2002, she has been a freelance author and curator, specialising in culture and health. Uta von Debschitz lives in Berlin.

In addition to the monograph “Fritz Kahn – Man Machine” (pub: Springer), the Debschitz siblings also published “Frank Kunert: Topsy-Turvy World” (pub: Hatje Cantz), a book of photographs by Kunert, which was awarded the German photo book prize in 2009.
