My artistic research finds its origin in club culture, a subject that received more attention from the academic field in recent years. Previous studies mainly focused on the role of club culture and its effects on society from fields like sociology, urban studies, or criminology. Nowadays we see more studies, often cross-disciplinary or practice-based research, on the cultural phenomenon itself. I believe that a club is one of the most versatile and complete scenographic environments. This can be inspiring for the broader field of scenography, including theatre, and can also be further developed within club culture. In that respect, I work in and beyond this specific field and approach it both as an observer-analyst and as a maker. These two approaches shouldn't be seen as independent parts. They are developed in a concurrent pace, feeding and influencing each other constantly.
This website currently consists of two parts. The first part, Towards a performative club: scenographic aspects of club culture is mainly text-based and contextualises my research and provides an in-depth insight into my practice. The second part, Visual documentation reads as a visual essay. It displays my experimental studio research on the agency of light, as well as publicly shown work bringing together a wider variety of scenographic elements and spectatorship.
