Andersen Karin (Burghausen, Germany, 1966; degree Academy of Fine Arts Bologna, 1990) is a visual artist and video/filmmaker. She mainly explores human-animal interactions and the nature-culture dialectic. She has always accompanied her artistic practice with related theoretical studies and has been invited to lecture at several conferences and meetings.
