2017


I'll do an artist's talk at exp12 in Berlin on Friday 13th 2017, 8PM. I'll talk about why I prefer being a Dilettante over being a pro-photographer / emerging artist or stuff like this.



2016


Okay, I've been super-lazy with this news-section, but eventually I'll fill it up with all kinds of stuff some time soon. Because in real life I'm not that lazy ;)

For the time being, I want to share this with you: I'll be participating in the group show "Myths of the near future" in Barcelona. It is one of the three main exhibitions of this year's edition of the Docfield festival with the topic "Europe: Lost in translation". The whole thing is curated by Natasha Christia and obviously I'm forever grateful that she invited me to participate.

I'll show my work in progress "trying to find a fix" and I'm really excited about it. Also because it'll be in the very good company of the works of Arnau Bach, Carlos Alba and Julián Barón.

The opening is on the 19th of July at Arts Santa Monica. I'll be there, very happy to share my excitement!



2015


Together with Valentina and Alex from Akina Books I'll hold a workshop during the 2015 anniversary edition of the International Summer School of Photography in Kuldiga, Latvia. Applications are open until 20th of April. You can apply here. Guess what it will be about? Yes, photobooks!
Other amazing workshops at the ISSP 2015 will be held by: Jim Goldberg, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Anna Fox, Alexander Gronsky and Takashi Homma.



Together with Michela Palermo I'll hold a two weekend workshop entitled "OPEN SPINE" at 001 in Rome. Dates are 20,21,22 & 27,28,29 of March 2015. Please note: The workshop is going to be held in italian language.

In early 2014 I produced a multimedia-piece for arte's web-platform, as part of special feature on The Rise of Populism in Europe.

Find a link to the piece about the electorate of Berlusconi and his opponents in german language here and in french language here.



2014


I'll hold a two-days workshop entitled "remixing the printed world around us" during Le PhotobookFest on 15th and 16th of November in Paris.
In this workshop each participant is going to create a hand-bound artist book based on printed matter collected in the weeks preceding Le PhotobookFest.



In two intense days of non-stop inspiration and creation you will see many examples of independent photobooks, you will get familiar with different BINDING TECHNIQUES and based on your own CREATION you will be able to create more ARTIST’S BOOK once the workshop is concluded.
Through a very free and practical approach and employing a wide range of far-from-ideal materials we learn about the importance of the right material choices and the crucial role of the book as an object. Through trial and error we realize how the book can become a barrier between the reader and the message and how it can turn into an integral part of the work itself, becoming more than just a container.
