Actually she lives and works in Geneva where she graduated with a bachelor's and a master's degree in visual arts at the Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design (HEAD). In 2012, she completed her studies in pedagogy at the University of Geneva. The same year, Nina Haab sees herself attributed an artist's studio by the city of Geneva and won a Swiss Art Award in Basel. In 2015-16 the artist is invited to participate at ABA an artist residency in Berlin, support by Pro Helvetia. In 2020 she won the grant of the Foundation Abraham Hermanjat.

Collective memory is at the center of the artist research. Her practices explores the memories of others through their life stories, personal archives and meaningful places. These elements constitute the main inspiration and source material for her work, and her installations and films reimagine and represent her collaborators’ stories. Nina Haab is now particularly interested in the archetypal dimensions of autobiographies and how they relate to different locations and their respective local cultures. In that sense, memories construct personal and collective identities, and whether they true or false becomes less important than how they may provide new narrative material.
