Karin Andersen was born in september 1966 in Burghausen, Germany. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, Italy, graduating in 1990 with a research on the relationships between art and ecology. She also attended the bologna based comics and illustration school "La nuova Eloisa" in 1991.
In her paintings, drawings, photos, digital images and videos she tries to question human opinions about the idea of being "alien" and "different", to blur the boundaries between concepts like nature and culture or human and animal, simulating surprising interactions between different lifeforms and different natural or artificial environments.
