Valentina Karga

Valentina Karga is an artist and architect based in Berlin. As of 2018, she is also a professor for the initiation of artistic work in Design at HFBK Hamburg. Valentina’s projects encourage engagement and participation, facilitate practices of commoning and are concerned with sustainability. Working across different media and often inviting the public or community groups to complete the work, her work lays somewhere between conceptual art, design/architecture and socially engaged practice. Sometimes, through dialogue and building prototypes in a DIY manner, the works also end up imagining alternatives for societal infrastructures, such as economic and pedagogic institutions – this is what she calls “Art as Simulation”.
