PhD: Defense of Thesis. Utopien der Gegenwartskunst. Geschichte, Gegenwart, Kritik

I sucessfully passed the Defense of Thesis at HfG Offenbach with summa cum laude. The project „Utopien der Gegenwartskunst. Geschichte, Gegenwart, Kritik“ was a research into notions of utopia in contemporary practices after the end of communism at the end of the 20th century. It was supervised by Prof. Dr. Juliane Rebentisch, Prof. Dr. Beatrice von Bismarck and Prof. Rotraut Pape. Still some work to be done until the book will be published.
