Most of my work is photo-based and serial, and my art practice is unique in the sense that I reconstruct my individual Text- und Bildfindungen into multi-image assemblages, mostly grids and sequences, that advance legibility and encourage critical interpretation. My editing process derives from a combination of photo collage, writing and cinematic montage that seeks to achieve layered and complex photo works with an understated but distinct aesthetic. The general topics of my work reflect my interest in politics and history.
