Katrin Ströbel

Born in 1975

Lives and works in Marseilles, Stuttgart and Rabat

For Katrin Ströbel, drawing is a space in which painting, video, writing, and installation work can be indistinctly embodied. Therefore, she elaborates and lets her work transform according to the projects she chooses to specifically develop. Political issues relating to identities, urbanism, post-colonial history (among others), and the interaction between these various fields are the focus of her reflection. Her research gives particular prominence to the place of women’s bodies in the public space. She uses this feminist commitment to bring to light the unspoken and unthought aspects of society and to underline and question boundaries (geographical, social, sexual…). Katrin Ströbel divides her time between Germany, France, and Morocco, which enables her to put various cultures into perspective and document the impact of cultural contexts on the interpretations of a variety of life’s aspects.
