Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeld is a visual artist and researcher. She teaches Visual Dynamics and Design Culture as part of the Foundation Program. Working across media and in collaboration with various communities, she uses audio, video installations, performance and text to explore the debris of broken histories and assemble their fragments into new compositions. This work underlies the framework of what she terms “reparative critical practices” that intends to create small acts of repair and interventions in the cultural archive, to build alternative infrastructures for art and cultural production. She holds a PhD from the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies, University of Copenhagen (2015), an MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2008), and MA in Contemporary Art Theory from the Department of Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths College (2007).  She is a founding member of the artistic research network Reparative Encounters (2023-2024), which establishes a transcontinental network for knowledge sharing and artistic experimentation between artists from the US Virgin Islands, Ghana, Kalaallit Nunaat and Denmark. In Beirut, she is engaged in the theatre and cabaret venue Metro Al Madina.
