I am a fully-funded research student at Royal Holloway and an art critic. My research explores intersections of aesthetic, biopolitical, and ethical issues and develops the cross-species notion of dressage to examine case studies that operate in between performance and art after 1968. The project investigates bodily performance techniques of flesh-and-blood, embodied, and projected humans and horses through photographic documentation and material leftovers. I tutor at the Drama, Theatre, and Dance department at Royal Holloway and Kingston School of Art in London. Before commencing my PhD, I completed the Bavarian Elite Network MA programme Aisthesis as well as the MA in History of Art at University College London. My texts on art and art criticism have appeared in English and German, in publications such as Photography&Culture [forthcoming], Studio International, Die Springerin (AT), EIKON (AT), Widewalls (CH), Russian Art & Culture UK, and on Art UK.
