About me

I was 15 when I visited Norway for the first time - and have been enchanted by the North ever since. And so I chose to study art history and Scandinavian studies. Besides the North, my heart beats for theatre, funerary monuments, art, travelling and the colour turquoise in all its shades. My main focus in the broad field of art is funerary monuments, death in art, theatre and the history of art and culture in Scandinavia and from the 15th to the 19th century. As an art historian, cultural mediator, cultural blogger, author, photo and video artist and online editor, I bring art and culture to you in word, text, audio, image and video.

I'm a bit of a plant nut and the smell of lemons regularly carries me to the sun, while coffee and waffles always transport me to the north. I love to bake and write and regularly lose myself in well-told stories.

Together with Lena from Schöne Geschichte I do the podcast Kulturglitzern - your podcast from Lake Constance about art, culture and history.

What are you telling me about yourself?

I also run the event for private groups and for schools.

A very knowledgeable encyclopaedia on "death in art". Very stimulating and sympathetically presented.

A very knowledgeable encyclopaedia on "death in art". Very stimulating and sympathetically presented. Even if one knows quite a bit about the subject, one learned some surprising details (e.g. about the model of the "Ophelia" painting by Mallais, or the sarcophagus with skeleton under Massacio's "Trinity" in Florence). Even after this first impression, I believe the VI can highly recommend the events organised by Dr Stadie.
