Carola Lampe, is a Berlin-based artist working with photography, installation and performance. She graduated from Osnabrück University with a master’s in Fine Arts, has studied Dance and Choreography at Laban Centre London and Photography at Ostkreuzschule Berlin.
Carola’s work has been exhibited at festivals, galleries and institutions in Germany, UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Greece, Italy and Hungary. Her performances have been shown in Germany, the UK and Japan.
She has been chosen as an emerging artist for the 3rd cycle (2019-2020) and 4th cycle of PARALLEL Photo Platform programme. Carola is a winner of Belfast Photo Festival 2021 and was shortlisted for the Athens Photo Festival 2017, 2020 and Format International Photography Festival 2021.
