Karin Altmann

Karin Altmann is an Austrian artist, researcher and senior lecturer at the Department of Textile Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Beside her lectures – with a focus on dyeing with natural dyes, textile printing, and textile production fields – she has been developing and participating in a series of transcultural projects with international partners from Kyrgyzstan, Bhutan, Japan, Mexico, Mali and Ghana, and also in art projects with children, people with disabilities, refugees, and women in psychological or social need. As an artist and researcher, she explores the textile element as a specific mediality, with regard to its appearance and significance in art, culture and society, but also to its potential as a networking model, while theory and practice always relate to, extend and deepen each other.
