  • As part of my responsibilities, I'm expanding the online presence of the IPTK through social media to better showcase the institute and its research. I also assist in the preparation of research proposals by conducting literature reviews and obtaining sources. Additionally, I am available for editorial work, proofreading, and the organization of events.


  • *1999, Raised in Baar, I spent the last four years living in London. During this time, I completed both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Comparative Literature at University College London. Over the past few years, I have been regularly worked at the Kunsthaus Zug and the Authors' Association AdS.

    My primary research interests lie at the intersections of various media and disciplines, with a particular focus on the link between literature and the visual arts. For my Master's thesis, I conducted a comparative analysis of the works of Antonin Artaud and Hermann Nitsch, delving into the intersections of art theory and practice, as well as theatre and performance.

    I am also deeply interested in questions of transgression. I have frequently engaged with the works of Georges Bataille and, during my Bachelor's studies, conducted a comparative study with the oeuvre of Pier Paolo Pasolini.

    Additional areas of interest include Modernism and conceptions of the Avant-Garde, interdisciplinarity and mediality, linguistics and structuralism, the 20th century, British post-war Modernism, Austrian Modernism, as well as broader themes and developments of the 20th century.
