In 2024, I'm working on Choreographic Clues and Kettenkreationen in the frame of my 1 year working grant that I received from the City of Vienna. I am also part of Outerwoman, an artistic research project lead by of Cordula Daus in collaboration with Sebastian Bark, [M] Dudeck and myself.

Apart from artistic works I'm excited to be part of developing and teaching two new courses at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and in collaboration with the Johannes Kepler University in Linz.

As part of the transdisciplinary team consisting of Sustainability Scientist Maximilian Muhr, Art Historian Ulrike Payerhofer and Human Rights Lawyer Walter Suntinger I have had the fascinating task to develop the 8 ECTS course Sustainability Environment and Human Rights at the MA in Applied Human Rights. Parallel to panel talks and theory sessions we have taken a practise based approach to included artistic and activistic approaches and perspectives. We have specially focused on art’s ability to embrace uncertainty and chaos to “think differently”.

The other course Facilitating Participation - Practicing Agency headed by my collaborator Jasmin Schaitl, has been realised through support by the call that LIT Open Innovation Center made for courses at the intersection of art & science last year. The course is based on Jasmin's and my common research project Withdrawing the Performer. In my block focusing on Digital Enhancements & Hybrid Co-Presence I had the chance to co-teach with artist programmer and lecturer Jonas Bohatsch from the coding lab

Below a list of other mostly public activities!
