Karin Ferrari (IT)


Karin Ferrari (* 1982) uses images from pop and everyday culture to investigate the present. Her artistic research focuses on narratives at the threshold of academic theory, paranoid political imagination and esoteric utopias. Her artistic work is inspired by an Internet subculture that tries to understand what‘s really going on. Lives and works in Paris, Vienna and Rum in Tyrol.
