Photographer, film maker and artist.

Statement
As a teenager I was an activist for children's rights and this influenced my artistic woks. You could say that exemplarily, I am interested in the charged relationship between kebab (in German: 'Düner') and the Ore Mountains christmas pyramid. Injustice, power relationships and authoritarian structures appear in my works. My family biography that was touched by different political events between Eurasia and Western Europe helps me to formulate my message which is: investigate your own life in the context of socio-poltical and family networks to understand yourself and your place in the world better. Some of my works are trauma informed. Life as a case to be examined - that is probably why I use methods in my multi-disciplinary practice that look like criminological and archaeological methods.
