Potential lies in matter,
is already concretely present in things
and at base needs no other thought.
(Karin Kutsch, Text 07.16)


1964 born in Düren, Germany
1986–1993 architecture studies, Aachen
since 1994 lives and works in Cologne

Karin Kutsch began to examine and interpret the theories of Josef Albers, Max Bill, Le Corbusier and the Bauhaus parallel to her studies of architecture, with a focus on design, in Aachen. She worked as a professional architect in Cologne and Düsseldorf for a number of years, before fully applying herself to the fine arts in 1997/1998. During this period, her interest in the works of Agnes Martin and Blinky Palermo became a deciding factor in her career. Since 1998, Karin Kutsch has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Cologne, London and elsewhere.
