Personalities / Project participants / Karin Bauer

Karin Bauer


"I grew up and lived in various southern German towns as well as in Bagdad".

"In 1986 I moved to Hamburg, northern Germany".

"In 1994, after years of working in a transnational company, I decided to completely change my life, to take up western art of lettering study".

“Living in Iraq helped me to get to know the beautiful art of the letter and start my own career in calligraphy. I studied book design and calligraphy under Professor Andersch’s guidance at Hamburg University of Applied Arts, Art and Design Department”.

“In 1997 I opened my own calligraphy studio, worked as a freelance calligrapher and artist. I also frequented professional calligraphers’, photographers’, artists’ master-classes”.

"In 2003 I participated in a master-class at the International Calligraphy Symposium in Sunderland Art School, UK”.

“In 2003-2008 I was the first woman to preside over the International Calligraphy Association Ars Scribendi”.

“In 2003 I became a full member of Schreibwerkstatt Klingspor Offenbach and Schweizerische Kalligraphiegesellschaft calligraphy associations”. I also participated in international exhibitions in Germany, Veliky Novgorod (Russia), Belgium, Austria, Helsinki (Finland), Korea.
