I work with artists, galleries, and institutions to produce texts, exhibitions, catalogs, and events.
Since 2002, I have been developing curatorial and discursive events both on my own and as a collective as the co-editor-in-chief and the co-founder of Petunia, a feminist and intersectional magazine on art and culture since 2009 and as the co-founder of the think tank Making spaces, which gathers networks of women in architecture and urban development.

In parallel, I have been sales director and head of Development in leading contemporary art galleries in Paris (Perrotin, Air de Paris), New York, Brussels (c.l.e.a.r.i.n.g) Berlin (neugerriemschneider) or Mexico (jose garcia ,mx)

I operate out of Berlin, Germany.
