Bio

Born in the former Czechoslovakia, she studied spatial strategies at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee with Alice Creischer, Andreas Siekmann and Stephan Mörsch. Her work deals with living space and the fulfillment of life in the context of social, economic and environmental crisis, issues of corporate power and kleptocracy and their consequences for the planet. She creates objects often combining autobiographical texts or diary entries with global as well as local contemporary questions. She is based in Košice and Berlin.
