I am working as lecturer and senior-researcher at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and at the UNESCO-Chair in Arts Education in Erlangen.
Educated as an artist at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and graduated with a PhD in art-history at University of Munich, I had been teaching at schools for three decades. At the Bavarian Institute for School Quality I was responsible for art, film and drama education, mainly in respect to curriculum development. As chair of the European Network for Visual Literacy from 2016 – 2017 I coordinated the development of the “Common European Framework for Visual Literacy” (www.envil.eu). I am member of the European Regional Council of InSEA and honorary professor at the Hong Kong University of Education.
