Karin Felbermayr, born 1976, lives and works in Berlin/Germany and Vienna/Austria. Studied in Munich, Budapest and Vienna, featured on international exhibitions, awarded a bunch of times, published several books. In 2003 her performance Damenwahl was selected for Szpilman Award Shortlist.
Mark Gisbourne about Karin: 'The body as physiognomy (its forms, types, characteristics) as opposed to physiology (it biological functioning) is where Felbermayr begins. Her aim then is not strictly to question the role of gender as an existent reality, so much as posing the question as to whether that reality conforms to identity.'
