I recommend going to Concert in the Dark & Contemporary Art Salon on Saturday 7th of April at 8 pm ;) 
Next to some relaxing, meditative, spooky music compositions, you can see an exhibition by Irène Weis and the complete comedy under water series by Anne Klein and me. Additionally you will be able to meet musician Caroline Mirkes, who composed the intro jingle for our series.

It's time again to show some new video work!
What could I possibly do, well I thought let's do something spontaneously that hasn't really been done like that before, such as underwater .... comedy!

Together with stand-up comedian and actress Anne Klein, I created a mini-series of short underwater funnies. How does that look? Well there's a small preview for you here,  but you can find out more this Thursday when 6 short episodes premiere at the Openscreen event as part of the Luxembourg City Film Festival.  In a few weeks we'll have an online release with one additional special episode.
Looking forward? me too ;)

Recently the newly created municipality Mompach-Rosport in Luxembourg acquired one of my artworks as part of the celebrations of the communal fusion and inauguration of a new education and sports centre, where my series Klang und Stille (sound and silence) from 2015 is now on display. The three photos of the series were shot just a few kilometers away at a source feeding two water basins. Separated by a bridge, one of them lies still while the other is troubled constantly by a small waterfall. Underwater different worlds seem to merge together into a timeless play of nature.

Twice a year students organise the art history student congress for the German speaking countries, this semesters congress is organised by the art history students of the university of Leipzig, among the team - me ;)
We have been putting together the program, the finances, the PR, etc for the last 18 months. Yes academic structures take their time. The prouder we are now to invite all students of art history but also those interested in the subject to participate in this free event. The theme we chose for the 91st edition, also as a recurrence to ongoing political debates, is 'the other', under the German title 'Vermeintlich anders' we invite you to reflect on what is 'different' for you and see how the subject is treated by art. Not only will you find very interesting talks from the 24th - 27th November, but also a huge surrounding culture program with guided tours as well as a party to get to know Leipzig and its people!
Find the program on our website;
or keep up-to-date on facebook/kskinleipzig

Saturday night was museum night! 17 000 people, says Luxembourg's most read newspaper,came to the participating museums. Indeed there were so many people at the Casino Luxembourg it was hard to keep our group together and get heard, but our guided tour "coup de coeur" with Gabrielle Taillefert and me from the art-collective Richtung22 still was such a great experience. The 45 min tour trough Aude Moreau's la nuit politique (the political nightfall) at the Casino was only a one-time tour, but I learned a lot and I already hope to see you at the museum night in 2017! If you are interested in Aude Moreau's work I can really recommend the exhibition, you still have time until the 8th of January to check it out in Luxembourg City.

What's new?
Our Luxembourgish art-collective Richtung22 was asked by three Luxembourgish culture institutions to contribute to this year's museum night in Luxembourg city on 8th October.
We decided to accept the invitation by the art gallery Casino Luxembourg and two of our group - Gabrielle Taillefert and me - will give a guided tour with a personal point of view through their current exhibition la nuit politique by artist Aude Moreau. The tour starts at 19:30 and will be either in Luxembourgish or French, according to the public.

So a few weeks ago I decided to finally become a volunteer at Greenpeace Luxembourg and actively support a wonderful organisation and its important work.
Luckily I can also work on things from a distance, while still being in Leipzig a lot of the time. So straight away I got the great opportunity to create a new t-shirt design for the volunteers. In just a few days I had a simple but innovative design with a touch of history of art ;) I lent Delacroix's Marianne to lead - sort of an energy revolution this time. The shirt got a lot of positive feedback, and was worn by the volunteers on festival-stands, like here on the site of Last Summer Dance, a fabulous music & arts festival in Erpeldange-sur-Sure, where I also did some video-shooting for this years' aftermovie.
