approached through a personal perspective.

She works in a variety of collaborative constellations to creates spaces for individuals or groups to meet and share 
ideas, perspectives, methods and tools for collective organising and stories about the infuence of politics on everyday life and potential forms of resistance.

She has graduated in 2016 from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague, and has since then shown her work and organised assemblies and gatherings at Stroom Den Haag, Nest ruimte voor kunst, Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, Casco Art Institute – Working for the Commons.
