Besides this, she writes regularly for periodicals such as Art Papers, as well as contributes to catalogues for monographs (Arturo Hernandez Alcazar, , Farah Khelil, Pilar Albarracin, Hermine Bourgadier, Djamel Kokene, Hair Sarkissian, Chourouk Hriech, Pascale Martine Tayou, Huang Yong Ping, Txuspo Poyo, Otobong Nkanga, Younes Rahmoun, James Webb, Sue Williamson or Shen Yuan, etc…).

She works to get her with Mari Linmann ( for the methodic implementation of new public projects in the suburb of Paris and was the Spanish meditator for Fondation de France as their Meditaor in Spain for 5 years. She is currently working in the department of War Studies at King’s College towards the creation of a residency program and a curatorial project in 2016.

“My approach as a curator is based on the attempt to create conditions for work with emerging artists, whether in the form of exhibition projects or the establishment of larger calls for public spaces. My experience particularly as a mediator with the New Sponsors project sought to inspire citizens in a process that calls for a communal engagement and collaborative desire to consecrate culture.
Professionally, I believe that creating choices for people involves paying adequate attention to the concepts of language and culture. This dialogue is particularly dear to me specifically as, since my childhood, I have migrated through various cultures and boundaries. This constant motion is certainly not trivial, as it utilises choice as its driving force. The motivation to meet projects under demand comes from the constant transpositions that occur in our fast-paced world. It is these cultural and social changes that cause confrontations amongst us and produce various forms of cultural desire. This underscores the reality of a cosmopolitan lifestyle, and thus the reality of our society as whole, suggesting simultaneously new paradigms that can be put into place.”
