The WILD WEST in the East

With this project, "The WILD WEST in the East", I investigate East Germany’s cultural and personal fascination with indigenous American people. The photographs document the enduring attraction that these cultures hold within Germany. At the same time, the project highlights the various controversies that arise from this fascination and interrogates social perceptions of "authenticity".


Merkers is an ideal place to explore the Thuringian province. It was an industrial settlement which has completely lost its economic importance. The series shows the old and new inhabitants, including asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Syria and Central Africa.

Collect Bauhaus

This exhibit is following a trail off the beaten museum path: what has become of Bauhaus’s original works?
As well as the objects themselves, I am also particularly interested in their relationships with people. How did collector’s pieces find their way into the hands of their current owners, and how are they used?
