Karin Lindh as the new Artistic Director in 2012

Karin Lindh is an artist who lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Her artistic practise revolves around today’s desire culture: how commodity- and growth fetishism affect our relationship to space, place, politics and our experience of landscape. Karin works primarily with sculpture, text and performance. Her recent exhibitions include The Magnificient Boutique at Färgfabriken in Stockholm, Travelogue as Allegory at the Academy of Art, STAD håller öppet at the Architecture Museum in Stockholm, Örebro Open Art and Elizabeth in Gothenburg Cathedral.

Karin is one of the initiators of the Slakthusateljéerna (Slaughterhouse Studios), an artist-run studio association and project space located in the Slaughterhouse area in Stockholm. Here Karin runs the project "A room with a view" together with artist Eva Arnqvist and architect Adriana Seserin, a research-based project about the current transition of the meatpacking area. Karin participates regularly in various art publications and is co-producing the Swedish magazine STAD

Karin holds a MFA from the Royal institute of Art in Stockholm where she  took a postgraduate program in Architecture in 2008.
