"My curatorial and cultural mediation practice is a social practice. This means that my projects are about creating social spaces. I have a penchant for collaborative, discursive as well as site-specific ways of working and an urge for friction and resistance, which I provoke through punctual conflicts."
"I was born in Herisau in 1988 and grew up as a son of a florist, housewife and truck driver in Stein, Appenzell. After my Bachelor in Social Work with a specialisation in Socioculture at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts and The Hague University in 2017, several years of professional experience in various social work fields, I completed a Master of Art in Art Education Curatorial Studies at the Zurich University of the Arts in 2021."
