She is one of the curators selected to participate in the curatorial workshop How now to gather (11th Berlin Biennale) and she will be contributing to Sinema Transtopia’s programme Critical Conditions in November 2020. She has been the co-curator of the monthly film projection series Residing in the Borderlands at SAVVY Contemporary—The Laboratory of Form-Ideas (April 2019 – July 2020), which intended to create a new cartography of Berlin through diasporic perspectives. She is the co-editor of the publication How does the world breathe now? (published jointly by SAVVY Contemporary—The Laboratory of Form-Ideas Books and Archive Books publishers), where film is explored as witness, archive and political tool to address the current state of the world. She has co-curated the exhibition Letter from a Guarani Woman in Search of the Land Without Evil in the framework of the 15th Forum Expanded at the Berlinale. She has also curated the film program Black Audio-Visions: Transforming the Gaze through Sound for the London Short Film Festival 2020, exploring the auditory experience of ‘listening’ to a film through the eyes of Pan-African cinema-makers. She holds a BA in musicology (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) and an MA in Contemporary Art Theory (Goldsmiths, University of London, Visual Cultures Department) and has also completed violin studies at the State Conservatory in Thessaloniki. In 2018, she took part in the Curatorial Exchange Program ran jointly by the ΝΕΟΝ Organization for Culture and Development and Whitechapel Gallery (London).
