On the occasion of the exhibition DEBUTANT*INNEN 2021, I am delighted to be able to present my first artist’s catalogue “A Speck of Dust – A book about a speck of dust called Earth” with my work from the last five years. I look back sentimentally at how much work, reflection on my own artistic approach and emotion went into this book.
At this point, I would like to thank Rosanna Marie Pondorf in particular for curating the catalogue and for her mental support.
I would like to thank Veronika Christina Dräxler for the stimulating on-point interview, which isn’t afraid of uneasy topics and which you can find in the middle section of the catalogue.
Big thanks to Magdalena Jooss for her brilliant photographic skills.
Thanks to Matthew Bremner for gruelling hours of translation into English with a collapsing laptop.
Thank you Hubert Kretschmer and icon Verlag Munich for your trust.
Thank you Matthieu Chladekfor support and networking.
And last but not least, thank you from the bottom of my heart to the lfa Förderbank, the BBK Munich and Upper Bavaria, the Steiner Foundation and the Munich Department of Culture, all of whom provide constant support and encouragement.

With the initiative “DEBUTANTINNEN des BBK München und Oberbayern” (Debutants of the BBK Munich and Upper Bavaria), the Berufsverband Bildender Künstlerinnen München und Oberbayern e. V. (Professional Association of Visual Artists Munich and Upper Bavaria) has been promoting outstandingly talented young artists in Bavaria since 1982. (BBK) has been promoting outstandingly talented young artists in Bavaria since 1982. Every year, the exhibition offers three artists the opportunity to exhibit their work in the GALERIE DER KÜNSTLER*INNEN and thus celebrate their professional debut at a central exhibition venue for contemporary art in Munich.
In addition, the Bavarian State and the LfA Förderbank Bayern support the series of young artists by financing a monograph, which enables the exhibitors to use the printed work as a means of artistic expression in addition to the exhibition format. The monograph offers the artists a platform to present their own artistic practice on a national level. The publication of Hyesun Jung, Sophia Mainka and Janina Totzauer – published by the BBK Munich and Upper Bavaria – will take place during the exhibition opening.

I proud to be a part of this international art project that goes across borders. Starting in Turkey this year, my art work will go on a journey through the Netherlands, Italy and finally reaching Germany in a year time.
I am excited that I will get to know so many new people and places.
Help getting this project together! By reaching 1/3 of the money through crowd funding, we will get an immense financial push from the cultural department of the Netherlands.
Help us start this project. It will be a key player for the upcoming years.
Due to the brave decision to buy video art, the Mathias Pschorr Stiftung acquired my video “Viracocha” from 2019. Find it at the collection of Artothek Munich, where you can always lent it for a tiny fee.
Lent it, plug the stick to your personal projector / TV / PC and enjoy video art!
