News: Academy of Fine Arts / Art and Education Program

From now on I’ll be working as a University Assistant (equivalent of „lecturer“ in many other countries) at The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna / Institute for Education in the Arts / Art and Education Program in the superb team of Prof. Elke Krasny – it seems that I have landed at a place where I can combine all of my key professional interests (doing own artistic and research projects + teaching and planning practical and theoretical courses, exhibitions and events) at one of the oldest and most renowned art universities in the world.
I will be able to realize projects with external partners and outside the academia too; all current project plans are still valid. That is, in the coming years there will be a lot going on both within the institutional walls and beyond them — stay tuned!
