Current artistic statement
Beatrice is a researcher who uses the methods of photography, film, and installation to present her findings.

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: 'Döner') and the Ore Mountains christmas pyramid (in German: Erzgebirgische Weihnachtspyramide). 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. 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.
