Kinga studied art history, architectural history and pedagogy at the University of Karlsruhe, and obtained her PhD at the University of Stuttgart. Her research into Transylvanian gothic small architecture was published by Imhof. Kinga completed the Culture Management programme at the University of Hagen.

She has been teaching at MOME since 2005. During the pandemic, she applied for and coordinated the implementation of venue-specific installations at the new MOME campus.

Between 2021 and 2023, she directed the "Digital Didactics in Art Education" project for MOME, supported by the European Union, working with her doctoral candidate Tamás Fogarasy. Within the framework of the project, a collection of creativity-boosting, freely available programmes, tools and concrete classroom exercises has been created.

In 2015, at the 56th Venice Biennale, she served as curator of the exhibition Sustainable Identities (Hungarian Pavilion). In competition at the world’s most important contemporary venue, she worked with Szilárd Cseke, who is a visual artist, and 13 MOME students, following the principles of participation and design communication. In 2016, the project was awarded the silver prize at the A' Design Award & Competition, Como.

Since 2019, she has been a member of the panel of judges of the Art Transfer Prize (Ludwig Museum, Budapest).

Since 2018, she has been a member of the panel of judges of the Nadicija NOVUM Bratislava Art Association and the Bratislava Fine and Applied Arts University contemporary art prize. Kinga is a member of the MAB Humanities Committee.

Since 2004, she has been a member of the Verband Deutscher Kunsthistoriker, and
