Curatorial Statement

My curatorial work is aimed at addressing sociopolitical issues with artistic means; topics range from growing global inequality, the destruction of the environment, climate change, war, surveillance technology and security policy.

I see art as the production and reflection of cultural images – a concept that also encompasses architecture, design and fashion. Running parallel to my curatorial and academic activities, my interdisciplinary project office also works on concrete planning tasks ranging from the development of strategic principles to the creation of architectural designs.
