My first semester as a teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

My first semester as a University Assistant (equivalent to “Lecturer” in many other countries) at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna has come to an end — I took care of two exhibitions (display&management), taught my first art course, took part in a prize jury, and successfully mentored students about grant applications and portfolio design.

Now I will have some time for own project planning – within the next years, there will be a lot going on on many fronts!

I wish all of you blog readers a relaxed and warm summer!
