Karla Kracht


Karla is a visual artist using a mix of illustration, animation, video and performance to create her works. Educated in Germany, Spain and the UK, she lives and works in Barcelona. She uses her drawings, animations and video-art to create room-filling performance- and installation pieces, which have been exhibited in festivals and art spaces worldwide.

Her artistic practice focuses on real time aspects of her work. Recurring topics in her work are time and space and current social issues, which she portraits with a good portion of humour. Her influences come from everyday live, from the many work related travels, from the misery of this world and the beautiful things of humanity.

Recently she formed a team with stage director and dramaturge AndreĢs Beladiez, joining forces and disciplines to create performances between visual arts, comic, animation and stage arts, which they call Live Cinema.
