I am an artist, researcher, curator, and organizer currently based between Vienna, Austria and New York, USA.

I explore the intersections of capitalism, climate change, ecology, and museums.

My recent projects have emphasized the study of capitalism's role in injustice, inequality, and its role in advancing climate change, as well as its reflection and impact in art, museums, and archives.

I work through collaborations, commissions, and partnerships which result in exhibitions, public programs, archives, and publications.  My work spans disciplines and modalities, whereby I develop methods of research to reveal systems of power, highlighting underrepresented voices and positions in the struggle for political, environmental, and economic justice. I was trained as an engineer and sound artist, but these days, I mostly make books and (para-)institutions, teach courses and workshops in design and environmental art, conduct research, and write/edit text.

I co-founded ︎︎︎Museum of Capitalism, a public museum that imagines the end of capitalism, made in collaboration with hundreds of artists, historians, and community groups, and the co-editor of ︎︎︎Museum of Capitalism (Inventory Press, 2017; reprinted in an expanded edition in 2019). I also co-founded ︎︎︎deurendis, an independent, artist-run venue for curated residencies, collaborative gatherings, and land stewardship.
