This is a list at occasions where I have talked about (my) photography:
12min.me Hannover, Art night – Buenos Aires / Argentina, infinitas – feminine Freimaurerinnenloge Hannover, ISSP – International Summerschool of Photography Latvia, Toastmasters International Hannover Speakers, Neuer Kunstverein Gießen, Pecha Kucha – Museum August Kestner Hannover, Presseclub Braunschweig and many more to come...
It is a personal concern of mine to strengthen and support women* in their public visibility as professionals. In the past I established a women* circle for public speaking in Hannover and I'm happy to connect around this topic.
I also teach workshops about and around photography for institutions and companies.
One recent project I would like to point out is the workshop 'Biophilia' for teenage students from Braunschweig. The lectures are given by an interdisciplinary team of music professionals, a sound engineer, a scientist and me as a visual professional. Inspiration was the app album 'biophilia' by Björk which explores the links between nature, music and technology.
For the workshop I developed a photo lecture based on synaesthesia – translating music into photographs and connecting the idea of sound compositions into the post-production. It was important to use very intuitive apps and tools to focus on the individual, artistic expression rather than the technical side.
A part of the workshop was to visit the scientific laboratories at the university and learn how to get images of (one’s own body-) cells. The picture material was then recomposed and merged with the students own music pieces. The final product is an interactive online / offline exhibition that currently travels the region.
