Since the beginning of 2018 she has been holding an artistic research position at the Universität der Künste in Berlin for her project »Revisiting Collections –Transformations of Cultural Education using the Example of Digital Education in Non-European Ethnological Collections« funded by the BCP (Berlin Program for the Promotion of Equal Opportunities for Women in Research and Teaching) within the framework of the excellency program DiGiTal – Digitalisierung: Gestaltung und Transformation.
To her, curating is an artistic research process in itself that allows for enquiry – to re-imagine, re-arrange, and experiment with its methodology and means of communication.
In 2014, she initiated the salon-series Performing Encounters. This long-term project, which was awarded a research grant by the city of Berlin in 2015/2016, focuses on games and dialog as modes of research.
