Juan Bermúdez, born in 1994 in Bogota, Colombia, is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Wiesbaden, Germany. He has a degree in sound engineering and sound art where he studied under the tutoring of Peter Kiefer, Stefan Fricke and Salome Voegelin. Bermúdez's artistic practice spans intermedia installation, sound art, video, and text. He is recognized for his minimalistic and conceptual approach to sound, field recordings, and electronic music using them as a foundation to explore other mediums. His work engages deeply with themes such as the politics of time and non-human measures of time, often through durational processes that transform the public perception over the course of an exhibition.

Bermúdez has showcased his work in numerous venues, including Espacio Odeon in Bogota, Kunstverein Münsterland in Coesfeld (SoundSeeing Festival), Karl-Marx-Haus and Museum am Simeonstift in Trier (OPENING Sound Art Festival), WaveCave Sound Art Gallery in California, and Rhein-Mosel Halle in Koblenz among others. His works have been performed or featured in HR2 Kultur in Frankfurt, Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Museo Santa Clara in Bogota, and art.ist - Kooperative New Jazz Walkmühle in Wiesbaden.

He has received several awards, including the Deutschland Stipendium, the Rotary Club Mainz-Churmeyntz Cultural Promotion Award, and a DAAD-Colfuturo Master's Degree Scholarship. Bermúdez's work examines the temporality of waiting, social pluritemporalities, and the interplay of time, sound, and memory, critically reflecting on contemporary society's obsession with accuracy and the multifaceted nature of temporal experiences. Currently he is studying “Sound Art - Composition” as part of the post-graduate studies (Meisterschüler:in) at the Hochschule für Musik Mainz.
