Doctorate at Leibniz Universität Hannover. Kindly supported by VALIE EXPORT at Academy of Media Arts, Cologne.
Degreed Engineer in Architecture at Vienna University of Technology
During my studies I worked with Roland Goeschl and Ingeborg Pluhar. VALIE EXPORT kindly supported the work on my doctoral thesis.
The architect Helmut Richter was the adviser of my diploma thesis. He pointed me to the works of Karl R. Popper, Rudolf Carnap, Otto Neurath and other members of the "Wiener Kreis" (Vienna Circle).
I was mainly influenced by the works of the "Wiener Gruppe" (H. C. Artmann, Friedrich Achleitner, Konrad Bayer, Gerhard Rühm and Oswald Wiener).
As an author for architectural magazines in the late 90ies I had face-to-face contact with Friedrich Achleitner and Peter Weibel.
The center of my work lies in the engagement with space, light, colour, moment, point of view and its possibilities and impossibilities of spatial projection.
Today I am working with different media and techniques (3D computer graphics, linocut, gouache, pencil sketches and digital photography).
