Nija has an academic background in urban studies and urban design, as well as in planning, with degrees from Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, TU Vienna, and TU Berlin. After a brief period in the Berlin municipal administration, she is now part of the K LAB team. She is interested in practices of solidary self-empowerment that are emerging in both urban development and urban space. Through her engagement in the “Raumstation Weimar | Berlin | Wien” collective, she is pursuing various approaches and methods of artistic-activist (spatial) exploration and intervention with a focus on collaborative learning, experimentation, and the organization of moments of friction. In addition, Nija traces the emancipatory potential of digitality from a critical cartography and activist perspective.
