My work borrows methods from anthropology and philosophy, and combines them with the practice of art and beekeeping. Since 2014, I have been deve- loping the DIY research project “Apian,” which explores the age-old interspe- cies relationship between humans and bees. The results are polymorphous ethnographies, which mix different media such as text, photography, sound and videos. In 2020, Apian published its first book, Hives / Ruches (RVB/ Images Vevey, 2020) – a visual atlas of the beehive. “Apian” also aims to be collaborative and has been a site for meeting around shared sensibilities, for example with Randolf Menzel, Laurent Güdel and Ellen Lapper. My work has been shown most recently at Eyebeam 2021, Images Vevey 2020, ICA Lon- don 2020 and CTM Festival Berlin 2019, among others. I hold a MA in Visual & Media Anthropology (Freie Universität Berlin, 2018), a BA in Photography (ECAL, 2014) and a certificate program in Critical Philosophy from The New Centre for Research and Practice.
