Farewell to Karin Ohlenschläger
We mourn the loss of our colleague and friend Karin Ohlenschläger, who passed away on August 24, 2022. Her death is a great loss – privately as well as for the art world. This is not meant to be a listing of Karin’s professional career and the central role she played as a curator in the international media art scene as well as the development of the Spanish media art scene. Rather, it is a personal look at shared projects and an enduring friendship.
