Karen Obling

Karen Obling is a Nairobi-based, Danish freelance art-writer and curator with a background in art history and cultural communication from the University of Copenhagen. In 2011 she established the Addis Rumble blog striving to uncover hidden cultural endeavors and treasures from East Africa and share them with the rest of the world. The blog serves as a platform for information on what is occurring in East African countries within the arts, and aims to present outsiders with alternative ideas and images of the countries represented. While living in Ethiopia, Karen curated two successful exhibitions entitled Notions of Peace I & II, in collaboration with six artists from the Netsa Art Village artist collective. Karen is also working on various freelance projects, including a photographic exhibition entitled Soul of an Ethiopian Woman.
