Her transdisciplinary practice includes historical research, installation, video essay, editorial and curatorial work. On the basis of historical events, personal archives and contemporary developments, she researches questions of memory, borders, economical arenas of global war, landscape, intersectionality and migration. Her works unfold between spaces, objects and bodies and deal with shifts in meaning of places and their social structure. The artist's fragmentary narratives and images are an attempt at the question of which and whose stories gain visibility.
In 2018 and 2020, she curated the exhibition krieg kuratieren (curating war) at Dessous Wien and the Kunstraum Innsbruck, which dealt with the practice of exhibiting and organizing of wars as well as the question of artistic perspectives in the politics of memory. She was on the editorial board of the art magazine Bildpunkt (2016 - 2019)and a board member of IG Bildende Kunst (2016 - 2020). Since 2019 she is an editorial member of the online magazine MIGRAZINE - Online Magazine by Migrant Women for Everyone.
