As part of the Research Cluster “Animals Mediating the Real and Imaginary” at the Arkeologisk Museum at Universitetet i Stavanger in Norway I am a U.S. Fulbright Foundation Research Scholar, to be followed by Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) Fellowship. My project, Eden and Everything After: Imagination, Observation, and Utopian Urgency in “Animalized” Art includes public participation, a museum exhibition, monograph, and catalogue, along with actions meant to address the destruction of the Arctic ecosystem and its role in the Sixth Mass Extinction.

The hub of all my work is the writing and art of Franz Marc and his life’s question regarding the perception of animals and the recovery of our relationship with them.

My website, German Modernism is about all these subjects.
