She is at-large curator for Tensta Konsthall in Stockholm and teaches in the Art, Media and Technology department at Parsons. Recent projects include: Towards A History, A Politics, A Philosophy of the Online Image, a research project exploring forms of hybridity, modes of authorship, economies of attention and conditions of sociality specific to the online image and To Have and To Owe, an exhibition and lecture series realized together with artists, theorists and activists that considers debt’s aesthetic and affective dimensions as part of its economic register.
