Born and raised in a rural part of southern Germany, I have lived and worked in Berlin since 2004. I identify myself as an intersectional feminist with pronoun she. I studied Photography (at Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin – with Eva Bertram and Marc Volk and at Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie Berlin – with Sybille Fendt) and I have an academic background in Gender-Studies (at Humboldt Universität, Berlin). In my artistic work, I bring together feminist and queer theory with visual image formulation. I move in the field of documentarism, mainly with photography and short video productions. In a constant process, I consider and explore a critical approach to documentary image production, which takes into account the constructedness of images and different practices of looking. I see my work as both artistical and documental as I work with subjective and situative images and adopt a process oriented approach. To do so I use different visual languages. For me the contact and social interaction with my protagonists has a high significance for my way of working. To improve my skills in the field of documentary video I took part in a workshop by the 2470 media agency in Berlin, which I did in 2015. Content wise I‘m interested in power structures in society and the constructedness of biography and identity as well as questions of social privileges and issues of standardization. Currently I ‘m doing a photographical series about migrational care work in Germany. In this project, I am working with Danuta Banasiak, a live-in care worker from Poland who attends a 90 years old demented woman. In this work, I want to take a closer look at the social localization of care work and its political dimensions. The series will be exhibited in Kunstquartier Bethanien in Berlin in March 2018 (see examples of this work in the attachment). In addition to my artistic work I‘m take on commissions in the field of antidiscrimination and empowerment. I have done video workshops with minor unaccompanied refugees in Germany for the Goldbekhaus Hamburg as well as numerous workshops in the field of media and political education. Since 2016 I have been responsible for public relations for the antidiscrimination information center ADAS (Anlaufstelle für Diskriminierungsschutz an Schulen) in Berlin. Moreover, I work as a freelance photographer and video maker, mainly for social and political organizations.
