BEYOND TAHRIR followed 2013 as well as numerous individual publications together with her Masters studio Culture and Identity at University of the Arts Bremen. Her approach and attitude led to outstanding and successful editorial work — conceptualised, designed, edited and produced from within the Masters studio Culture and Identity led together with her colleague and renowned German photographer Peter Bialobrzeski. The latest publication Crisis — What Crisis is about Athens and its future in Europe. The mediated opinion criss-crosses the personal and subjective visual investigations of the works of 14 young people, for whom the idea of Europe was not a vision or possibility, but a reality. The work will be published in November 2015 (exhibition and edition).
