Since 2010 after finishing her studies in the classes of Anselm Reyle, Katharina Sieverding and Antje Majewski, Irma Markulin (born in 1982 in Bosnia, lives in Berlin now) has been engaged with images in the political context. For this purpose she relies on existing photographic and documentary archives to recall collective memory. Large-scale paintings, sculptures and installations are a result of her research that deals with visual duality. They reveal absurd governmental power representation, a critic evaluation of her countries socialist past and of collective memory.

In 2016 Irma Markulin is invited to the ‘Artist in Residence’ programme at Vienna’s Museumsquartier Q21.
