Karin Båge

Nationality: Swedish

Karin graduated in 2007 from Sussex University, UK, with a BA in International Relations and Anthropology, and has since then worked in three collaborative film projects in West Africa and Sweden. These were very powerful experiences, from which she learned a great deal, but also made her question much of what she was doing. She is pursuing this MA partly to learn more about how visual media can be used, and partly to further investigate what it really means to make one's own, but more importantly other people's voices heard. She is interested in politics and is inspired by the experiences she has had facilitating creative processes (both in writing and video making) because almost always do they become more personal than what was initially expected.
