Karin Raitmayr, based in Vienna, studied experimental visual design and art pedagogy. She has participated in group exhibitions in Austria, The Czech Republic and Germany.
The human body, specifically photographs of her own body, always takes center stage in Karin’s work. The sensual aesthetics and stillness of the photography may sometimes override the multitude of deeper and harder issues that the artist is digging into.
From the traditional image of gender role and identity issues, to everything that affects the identity formation of a person, whether it be family roots, the role of clothing, or habitus, Karin has chosen a very intimate and gentle language to raise questions that are common to all of us human beings.
