Kristina Schmidt (*1982 in Germany) is a painting and multi-media artist, currently based in Munich, (DE) and New York City, (USA). She assembles paintings, objects and time based media for a cheerful conversation, echoing concepts like the artist’s (especially the painter’s) questionable subjectivity, the artwork’s autonomy, the art market’s mechanisms, and their perception in late capitalism.
