My overall research focus is contemporary art and art theory/aesthetic theory.

Currently, I take particularly interest in investigating how new technology is used in art in a narrow sense and in aesthetic practices in a broader sense such as e.g. speculative design and activism. For instance, I am looking at the aesthetic potentials of computer technology, DNA-manipulation, artificial intelligence, robots etc.

I also have a profound research background in the globalization mechanisms governing the field of contemporary art today, which includes the significant presence of non-Western art in Western art institutions, and the general internationalization of museums, biennales, and curatorial practices. 

Finally, I have a soft spot for theory on visual theory in general and I find the mechanisms of visual communication – in cityscapes, science journals, social media etc. – to be intriguing objects of critical analysis.
