About

I’m a visual artist based in Berlin fostering environmental awareness through artworks, workshops and hands-on projects like the Repair Cafés. I work in the field of Creative ReUse and Education for sustainable development (ESD) and I am currently organising  the project Upcycling Future Lab with La Red – Vernetzung und Integration e.V. 

Since 2009 I’ve been an active member of Kunst-Stoffe e.V.  and n 2015 I became a member of the board. In January 2013 I started, in my atelier in Kreuzberg, the first Repair Café in Berlin, which already in the end of 2013 was awarded with the Berliner Umweltpreis (Berlin Environmental Award) in the category “Umweltengagement” (Environmental engagement). Today the Repair Café has grown into a grassroots movement and I organise several Repair Café workshops, events and seminars throughout the Berlin area.
