What is your professional focus?
My professional work and research foci are participatory and decentralised cultural projects in the contemporary art sector.
What potentials do you see in the certificate course “Artistic Interventions in Cultural Education” for your specialist field?
Art still receives too little appreciation as a trans-disciplinary resource in society. Artistic interventions are a significant approach to actively make use of this potential – for example in urban planning, regional development or also to address ecological challenges.
Which changes are needed at cultural policy or education policy level to strengthen the potentials of cooperation with artists for Cultural Education in Germany?
Trans-disciplinary approaches and models to realise them are needed at all levels.
