About me

I am currently a visiting professor at the Department of Art History, Musicology and Theatre Studies at Ghent University (Belgium). I also teach at the Institute for Theatre-, Film- and Media Studies at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) and I work as a project coordinator for the citizen science project “Das Dritte Reich und wir” at the Justus-Liebig-University Gießen (Germany). As a freelance dramaturg and researcher, I also collaborate on several artistic projects.

I hold degrees in Philosophy (University of Antwerp, 2007) and Theatre- and Film Studies (University of Antwerp, 2008). In 2009, I completed my studies at the Free University of Berlin. In 2016, I obtained my doctoral degree at Ghent University with a dissertation entitled Visually Speaking. A Research into Visual Strategies of Illusion in Postdramatic Theater

I publish on the themes of visual dramaturgy, intermediality, postdramatic theatre and the performance of images.
