I joined the department in September 2017 as senior lecturer and course director for the Art Market and Appraisal (Professional Practice) MA. I also teach at Central Saint Martins and UAL on Art History, Art Markets and Globalisation; and at Sotheby's Institute of Art Online Faculty and Christie's Education.
I hold an MA in Art History, an MBA (Public Services) and a PgCert in Art and Design Education and am a fellow of the Higher Education Authority and chair of Contemporary Markets, TIAMSA.
I write for Handelsblatt, run Kunstburo consultancy and have managed art fairs and worked for galleries internationally including charities such as the Serpentine Gallery and Contemporary Art Society. My research centres around contemporary art markets, cultural globalisation and the art school as institution.
I have an extensive and practical theoretical understanding of British and international art markets and a keen interest in art scenes of emerging markets.
Senior Lecturer and Course Director, MA Art Market & Appraisal (Professional Practice)
My research is based on cross-disciplinarity, collaboration, and sharing. I consider all areas of my professional engagement as part of my research process, being this professional work, journalistic activities, teaching as well as academic research. All these areas influence my research interests, activities, and outputs. My research is predominantly concerned with contemporary art markets and globalisation. I have published on the role of art academies within globalisation, and am preparing a number of journal articles around the role of the artist within the market. I have presented research on Frieze Art Fair as a platform for change in agency for the artist at the TIAMSA Art Fair Conference in London in July 2017 (proceedings forthcoming). I am furthermore interested in the art school as institution, globalisation and power and sustainability in the art world.
I write and publish in German and English.
