The more clearly you understand yourself and your emotions, the more you become a lover of what is. – Baruch Spinoza
I develop exhibition concepts and art projects around personal and collective themes. The themes are explored together with the artists in a preliminary deepening awareness and working process. I have developed and implemented a number of ideas for exhibitions and art projects that can be resumed in other venues and with other people. (visual artists, poets, musicians, art students, etc.). The preliminary phase consists of a 5-day working period and 3 or more online meetings.
The projects include exhibitions, rituals, and an accompanying awareness process. I make use of meditation, systemic constellations, co-creativity, critical response processes (of Liz Lerman) and transparent communication. The project starts from the deep awareness of seeing and honoring each other in their full potential and appreciating their contribution. The themes and contents of the projects are in service of life.
