KARLA KRACHT (artistic name of Alexandra Zitzmann) .
born 1975 in Germany.
Karla is video artist, illustrator and animation artist. Educated in Germany, Spain and the UK, she lives and works in Barcelona. She uses her drawings, animations and video-art to create room-filling performance and installation pieces, which have been exhibited in festivals and art spaces worldwide.
Recently her artistic practice focuses on real time aspects of her work. Recurring topics in her work are time and space, borders and current issues, which she portraits with a good portion of humour. Her influences come from everyday live, from the many work related travels, from the misery of this world and the beautiful things of humanity.
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.
