She has recently co-founded Infinite Conversation Association, devising a long-term curatorial platform <Quote – Unquote> that addresses the notion of public speech by exploring its layers in contemporary society, the power of discourse to claim authority, to manipulate, the effects and elements it entails, and the performative aspects of speech-language-voice. In the summer of 2019 she participated in a two-week curatorial workshop, part of Salzburg Academy, led by curator Marina Fokidis around notions of site-sensitivity, polyphony and entanglements within curatorial practices. Recent project addressing contemporary notions of privacy and technologies with artists Nora Silva, Ami Clarke and Nilz Källgren was part of ODD P R  I V A T E L Y 2018 in Bucharest.
