Karolina Sobel (*1987 in Tychy, Poland) is a Polish-German media artist and graduated from the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe in 2019. Karolina Sobel holds a Master's degree in Urban Studies (TU Darmstadt), studied social sciences at EHESS in Paris and visual arts at IUAV in Venice. Her interests include modes of representation of social issues (such as identity, the process of building communities, social exclusion). For her work, she seeks different modes of representation that allow her narrative to expand on the level of multiple discourses. She uses different media with a documentary approach that aims to blur the line between fiction and reality. Karolina Sobel currently lives and works in Karlsruhe and Warsaw.
