Vita

Her field is Romance languages and literatures. Her work focuses on literary and cultural studies, as well as aesthetics, art history, and visual studies. She has taught as a guest lecturer at the Berlin University of the Arts and the Humboldt University of Berlin and was a research fellow with the DFG (German Research Foundation) programme “Technology and Society” at the University of Darmstadt, where she obtained her doctorate in Philosophy. Her first monograph, The Mannequin: From Lay Figure to Technological Cult Object in the Work of Giorgio de Chirico (Weimar, 2008), discusses the so-called "Metaphysical School”, an avantgarde group, and its strange, evocative representation and exploration of the body. Before joining the ICI Berlin, she has worked as degree programme coordinator at the Berlin University of the Arts and in post-production for a film company.
