As an artist and a social scientist my intention is to contribute to the discussion on important contemporary topics such as as humanism, human rights and democracy. I believe that there is a big potential for better knowledge and political awareness both for artists and audience. I do this by combining art, crossdiciplinary academic reflection and by involving the art audience in discussions and workshops.
Visually I experiment with different kinds of techniques and media.
Planned projects and exhibitions
I`m currently working on my project # Lesvos threads
A project concerning the global refugee crisis based on my fieldwork in Lesvos, Greece, June 2018. I´m interested in how I as an artist can communicate about political issues and trauma.
