I studied design and visual communication at the Folkwang University of the Arts (Essen, Germany) and the Zurich University of the Arts (Switzerland) and wrote my doctoral thesis at the HFBK Hamburg. As a designer I have worked mainly in the socio-cultural field. I am currently a professor at HSHL, having previously taught at the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, the Fachhochschule Münster, Ecosign and the Folkwang Universität der Künste. I am a member of the German Society for Design Theory and Research, the International Gender Design Network, and the Design & Posthumanism Network.

If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately.
