BIOGRAPHY


Katharina Kiebacher is a Berlin-based artist working with a variety of mediums,

manifestations. Her work shares a curiosity and inspiration that is drawn from
everyday life with a playful and poetic approach to art making.

Kiebacher received a Diploma at the Folkwangschule Essen (2006) and
a Master in Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art (2009)
