Art Education

I have been teaching photography and time-based media at different art colleges, academies and universities since 2005. From 2014-2018 I worked as an academic assistant  to Prof. Andreas Kleinert and Prof. Barbara Albert at the Filmuniversity Potsdam-Babelsberg. Important to me are topics on future image production processes in the digital transformation and design possibilities of transformation processes, such as the generation of electricity through photovoltaics in projections in public space, and to develop projects on this with the students. Changing perspectives in context, attitude and position are important to me in my teaching. My teaching is constructivist, intersubjective, involving and activating. Open and equal exchange are the basis of my teaching. Teaching students to accept and weigh different opinions without losing their own attitude and position is what makes up my understanding of teaching photography in  art and design.  It is important to me that students develop an individual visual language with their own stance, become socially and politically involved as artists' personalities and are also able to contextualise themselves in an expanded concept of photography. In particular, as a lecturer at an university, I hope to be able to help shape a diversity and gender sensitive space.

Arts and Design Based Research

Interfaces of art, design and sciences  interest me from my studies of artistic research at the Art University Linz, which I completed 2019 with a Ph.D. in artistic  and design based research. I work artistically on the topic of identity trough relations from space to time to the self. Thematic areas that appeal to me in artistic  and design based research are urban research and urban development, Social Design and Design Thinking.  In addition,  my work is based on interdisciplinary work with other disciplines. In particular, I am interested in research collaboration with  institutes on comparative studies related to machine learning versus human learning. In this respect, it is a particular concern for me  to think about the impact of digitalization on society and reflect upon Digital Literacy as well as  I am currently  focus on themes like climate policy, sustainability, digitalization, and equality.
