Catrine Val is an international conceptual artist, working in the field of photography, film and performance. Out of interest in the concepts of time and history she has focused on the role of women within diverse cultural and political systems and not the least on women in the history of philosophy. Catrine Val began her career in advertising in Vienna, Austria. Feeling unfulfilled in this profession, she moved into the arts, and completed a BA at the Art Academy in Kassel, Germany.
She did postgraduate studies at The Academy of Media Arts in Cologne and was assistant to Valie Export. After graduating, she was assistant lecturer in the field of virtual reality at the Art Academy in Kassel. She has worked extensively in etymology and has collaborated with women in India, South America, Asia and Europe. Methodological Reflections on Women’s Contribution and Influence in the History of Philosophy will be published by Springer in January 2020 . She just won the WMA COMISSION, Hong Kong.
