is an artist and filmmaker. His productions often negotiate public space and are also shown there, too.

 

In his cinematic work he negotiates the potential of self-empowerment through the performative camera, alienating effects in the documentary, and strategies of subjectivation. His film works are mostly characterized by collaborations with the protagonists and experimental settings.

 

His latest works concentrate on memory and resistance. In Cologne he is developing a film-based and by using Augmented Reality also participative monument in memory of the racist attacks by the terrorist NSU network in Probsteigasse and Keupstrasse.

 

He is also Professor for Time Based Arts at the weissensee academy of art, berlin. There he initiated in particular the *foundationClass for artists who were forced to flee their home countries.
