Editor

I’ve always been drawn to the arts and to writing, so I somehow found my way from a not particularly noteworthy village in the Austrian mountains to the incredibly pretty city of Lincoln, where I am currently doing my MA in Arts Journalism. Before that, I did English and American Studies at the University of Innsbruck.

I recently joined the 1215.today team as a creative editor. It’s an amazing project and I am proud to be part of it. I believe that there is no art isolated from what is going on around and within us—art in all its forms is always in some way a reaction to someone or something—so I am very excited to have the chance to explore topics such as democracy, justice and conflict through the arts over the next few months.
