Photo by Andreas Langfeld


I am an art and photography historian and curator focusing on Latin America, Europe, and Anglo-America. In my research, I am interested in how photography is conceived and used in different parts of the world, taking into account issues of coloniality and queer theory. In my curatorial projects, I work with both historic archives and living artists, seeking to engage in discussions of what art and photography can be in and outside the European canon.

I earned my B.A. in English, French, and Art History from Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt in 2013 and my M.Sc. in History of Art from the University of Edinburgh in 2014. I held internships at MoMA in New York, the ZKM in Karlsruhe, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and AXA ART in Zurich. In 2021, I finished my PhD on Chilean photo-historiography at Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen, Germany. Between 2021–2023, I was a fellow of the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Foundation and worked in different museums in Europe.
