Research interests

  • Crowdsourcing and community-sourcing: co-creative generation of content and knowledge in memory work
  • Participatory museum practices: patterns of engagements and levels of participation – collaborative, cooperative and co-creative frameworks
  • Building connectivities in museums: outreach and community-building, relationship management and changing roles from curators to moderators
  • Digital museum practices: open culture, born-digital objects, user-centred-design, digital strategy

As an Early Stage Researcher within the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network “Participatory Memory Practices (POEM)” my PhD-project focuses on user-centred approaches to crowd- and community-sourcing digital cultural heritage in museums. Exploring connectivites built by institutions the main case study will invite communities to participative interventions using the Hunterian collections of the University of Glasgow within the Glasgow cultural context and cooperation with Glasgow Museums at Kelvin Hall.

As starting point of research my core questions are: How can the process of interaction be initiated and designed collaboratively? Which roles are evolving from focusing on a co-creative approach? How can knowledge communities be built and connected in a sustainable way? How can such a process create meaningful content? And finally, how does the cultural heritage institution deal with the material and relationships created by these participatory methods?

Additional Information

I first developed my curiosity in participation discourses at the University of Hildesheim Foundation (DE) where I graduated in 2013 obtaining a Diploma degree (German equivalent to a Master’s degree) in Cultural Studies and Aesthetic Communication. My final thesis on the case study of Stapferhaus Lenzburg (CH) used ethnographical methods (participant observation and thick description) to investigate how exhibitions can pose questions to visitors and re-integrate their contributions. Followed by a position as Project Manager at the Ars Electronica Festival Linz (AT) and a Curatorial Assistance at the Historical Museum Frankfurt (DE), I explored many different forms of digital culture and participative museum work. As Curator for Digital Museum Practice at the Historical Museum Frankfurt I was fortunate to develop a new working field within a participatory memory institution with a special focus on community-building and user-centred approaches. Since 1 October 2018 I am working as Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Glasgow.
