Karl-Sczuka-Research Fellowship
I am more than happy and feel deeply honored that my latest soundwork – just finished in may 2023 – was awarded with the Karl-Sczuka-Research Fellowship 2023, a new category within the Karl-Sczuka-Price 2023. The fellowship and its grant is a collaboration between the SWR (Südwestrundfunk) and the Goethe-Institut. Thank you!

You can now listen to the full soundwork on the website of the SWR or in the ARD Audiothek.

New publication out!
A publication around the soundwork Soliloquy with Ape is finally out! The publication consists of a script or diagrammatic libretto of the soundwork as well as a conversation with the cultural theorist Romana Bund about the implication of taxidermy and creation fantasies in the 19th and 20th century. If you are interested in getting a copy send me an e-mail. The publication is in German and English and is published in collaboration with Scriptings/Achim Lengerer.
