About

I am a museologist, curator and lecturer specialising in photography, based in Switzerland. I am currently the director and curator of Photoforum Pasquart in Biel.

I studied photography at the Photography School in Vevey before turning to curatorial practices at HEAD-Geneva in the CCC programme. I then worked in different capacities for museums and galleries in Switzerland – curating exhibitions and organising events, as well as doing fundraising, PR and communication – in the fields of contemporary art, design, photography and even science for a blissful year, while working as an independent curator. I started teaching photography history and theory (as well as exhibition budgeting) in 2014 at the Photography School in Vevey. In 2016, I moved to London for the museology course at Birkbeck (University of London) and went back to Switzerland after my nomination as director of Photoforum Pasquart, one the leading Swiss institutions dedicated to photography, in 2018. My programme at the Photoforum focuses on emerging contemporary photography (with some incursions in the social history of photography) as well as the social and vernacular practices of photography.

Here is my (relatively up-to-date) full CV and here is what I’ve been doing lately.
