I am a European curator and writer.
You can find me in Berlin and Warsaw, sometimes in Switzerland near a big lake. We can communicate in English, French, Italian, German, and a few more idioms if you like. We can play chess, I can read you kabbalistic Tarot cards.
Among other activities such as observing
dragonflies and black holes, I like to translate ideas in exhibitions and in texts, as well as to write about, but not only, photography, painting, and installation.
