Frau Schmitt kriegt ihr Fett weg
In the project Frau Schmitt kriegt ihr Fett weg (Ms Schmitt gets rid of her fat), I document the liposuction of my lipedema in the form of social media posts and at the same time offer the liposuctioned fat for sale.
The project is the result of a three-month research fellowship within the framework of the #takeheart funding programme of the Fonds Darstellende Künste on the topic of body fat and reflects on the ambivalent relationship of our society to our own fat but also to the body fat of others. The sales campaign additionally addresses the capitalisation of artistic works and the sale of the "self" in social media.
The daily documentation of the operation and its consequences can be found on my Instagram channel

nonstoponline - online Performance Improvisation
In 2020 I have transfered, with Schmitt&Schulz our long term improvisation format nonstoponstage into a digital version. In this livestream variant, we have since been experimenting with the possibilities offered by the digital medium and exploring the possibilities of interaction with our audience. The project is constantly evolving. Sound and image composition are mixed live each time by Mo Walker, who is connected from Hamburg.
Funded by the programs „Im Fokus 6 Punkte für die Kultur“ of the state Rheinland-Pfalz, „Mainz hilft sofort“ from the city of Mainz and by Lotto Stiftung Rheinland-Pfalz and Stadtwerke Mainz
