is an artist and editor based in Berlin. Her art practice ranges from painting to hair sculpture. As an editor she strives to make 'good ideas' more legible than the bad and as a human she dreams of an old age on earth.
works in transdisciplinary artistic practice with a focus on research and mediation. She uses lens based media, installation, social moments, sculpture, print or writing to reflect the intersections and divergences of so-called 'high' and 'low cultures' and their socio-economic and political constitutions. Raised between Albania and Germany reflections on migration-related visual and material culture, the social life of things, networked images and diasporic narratives form main foci of her work. She studied photography, media arts and curatorial studies and see’s her work as an art educator as part of her artistic and activist practice. She works with a variety of groups together on collaborative artistic projects, e.g. amongst others for the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, within District Berlin as part of the intersectional, feminist collective N*A*I*L*S or the Critical Academy in Dublin.
