Karina Nimmerfall is a visual artist whose projects are generated from concerns found in the reciprocal relations of architecture and media. Engaging questions in regard to space, place and urban structures, as well as their conditions within cultural and political systems of representation, they form an investigation around various constructions of reality, memory and history.

Nimmerfall studied Visual Arts at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg, Germany and Art History at the University of Vienna, Austria. She was Artist-in-Residence at the Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg (2012) and Visiting Artist-in-Residence in the Graduate Studies Program at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena (2010-11).

Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions, including at Camera Austria, Graz (2018); Las Cienegas Projects, Los Angeles (2011); BAWAG Contemporary, Vienna (2009); and Landesgalerie Linz (2007).
