Karen Werner is based in Bergen, Norway, where she is an artistic research fellow at the Bergen Art Academy. Her creative practice revolves around radio, song, voice and story. In 2021, as part of a residency with BEK (Bergen Senter for Elektronisk Kunst), she set up SkottegatenFM, a three-month micro-FM station broadcasting from her apartment. Karen was the Inaugural Radio Artist Fellow at Wave Farm in New York in 2019-2020 and has created numerous live and produced radio works and collaborations for national, community and micro-FM stations. An upcoming commission is with Seyðisfjörður Community Radio in Iceland.
