From my wish to make art and art-based research more accessible and available outside the field of contemporary art, I initiated Academie In Situ. In this initiative I combine my experience as an artist, researcher and educator in a socially engaged art practice aimed at changing the way we perceive, give meaning to and use our spatial environment.
Academie-in-situ literally means academy-on-site and refers to my approach of our built landscape as an environment for learning.
Projects of Academie In Situ are self-directed or commissioned. The research is characterized as multi-sensorial and participative and integrates disciplines like art, archaeology, psychogeography and philosophy. Artistic interventions following the research are rather experience-based instead of material.
