'Be your animal' is a project close to my heart. I want to bring together my various fields of activity in a meaningful way. For many years, I have been researching and writing about art (modern art, Brazilian art, ephemeral art), currently especially about the image of man, precisely because it is essentially characterised today by the questioning of the boundaries between animal and human. I also work as a lecturer for museums and artists and sometimes curate an exhibition. For several years now, I have been training professionally in various body and alternative therapies, coaching and mindfulness techniques. I am also interested in the connections to topics of independent or ethnographic healing, primal power and indigenous knowledge, consciousness research, animal knowledge and living in authenticity and resonance with the environment.


There are exciting overlaps here with artistic practices, transdisciplinary research and an increased need to speak out as a researcher on the development of society and the environment. From my artistic background, I am also interested in alternative pedagogical approaches such as those of the Brazilian educator Paulo Freire, who brought me closer to 'learning from the other'. All these interests fuel my thirst to learn more and more about how and what we can learn from this 'other' (animals, nature, other people).

Therefore: Be your animal - be your animal! 

I invite you to join me on this journey!
