As a cultural theorist she explores ‘other states of being’, such as birth, mourning, hysteria, sleep, radical happiness & collective joy or sadomasochistic practices. After investigating how ropes can put people into active passivity – through bondage, but also puppet play or political activism – she is currently doing her doctorate on inventive forms of sex education beyond clear instructions, in which one experiments with wayward lifestyles that do not exclude insecurity, vulnerability, contradictions and lustful exuberance.
