about karla
Karla is Alex Zitzmann and that’s the story of her life

Karla is a visual artist using a mix of illustration, animation, video and performance to create her works. Educated in Germany, Spain and the UK, she is based in Barcelona and works worldwide. She uses her drawings, small handmade objects, animations and video-art to create room-filling performance- and installation pieces, which have been exhibited in festivals and art spaces worldwide.

Very significant for her work are bizarre personalities, which portray the back side of society. They are represented in her drawings, small handmade objects, animations and video-art. With these elements she creates room-filling performance- and installation pieces, that talk about nowadays society, an imaginative future and political issues. Mixing genres, techniques and technology, her work is fading between artistic disciplines. Her works have been exhibited in festivals and art spaces worldwide.


Recently she formed a team with stage director and dramaturge Andrés Beladiez, joining forces and disciplines to create performances between visual arts, comic, animation and stage arts, which they call Live Cinema.
