Curator | Writer | Art Historian
St. Gallen (CH) & Munich (D)
My focus includes political art, the artist as activist, art as labor, feminism, photography and the art market. I am always interested in commissions and ideas around curatorial work, writing, public speaking or art education. Have a look here to get some ideas on what we could work together or where I might be able to fit your needs. Just send me an Email and I will get back to you. This Homepage might be in English, but I am also fluent in German and Spanish.
Curating is situated in a whole ecosystem of conception, education, artist liaison and public relation. I am experienced in site-specific, low-budget and long-term exhibitions as well as the development of new display formats, always in the realm of contemporary art with a historic contextualization. I am deeply connected to social practice and feminism, with a strong academic background in art history and theory, and therefore, able to develop exhibitions on different topics.
Writing is a tool to understand the world, allowing to ask all kinds of questions. I write for different publishers in the position of feature writer, correspondent, and reviewer. I am also frequently contributor to catalogues and introductions.
If you are interested in more private thoughts subscribe to my monthly Newsletter, which I use as a safe space to share thoughts, projects and recommendations or have a look at my blog. Find the latest updates of it below.
I believe that art and the formats in which it is included need different forms of mediation. Depending on its specific necessities I am available for guided tours, themetic lectures, introductions, artist talks and other forms of public speaking. There are also further possibilities for art education apart from the regular formats, get in touch to discuss more ideas.
