Works for the archive of German artist Rosemarie Trockel. As founder of the nomadic curatorial project Hospitality, in search of exhibition formats, that are based on the basic principle of hosting.

Hospitality used the backdrop of living, intimate spaces to discuss what is considered as private and/or public.
