Vita

Britta & Ron Helbig studied contemporary dance and movement theater in London, Lichtenstein, the Conservatory, Linz and the dance academy balance one in Berlin before they were compelled to the visual arts. With a background of studies in painting and fine arts at the Berea College, Kentucky; the Philipps Universität Marburg, the UdK Berlin, and an excessive experience of various practises in building and construction work they are autodidacts in most artistic techniques.

As part of the 5-membered artists group "Artists Anonymous" they worked for four years in the fields of Installation, Painting, Photography, Video and Performance and since 2010 as the artists collective GODsDOGs.
