about

Born in Budapest (Hungary), grew up in Germany, lives and works in London, UK

My practice investigates the politics of institutional conditioning, the collapse of working, learning and playing and the deflation of childhood. I make performative sculptures, videos, text-based interventions and photographs that seesaw between didactic and perceptual formats.
