Her practice oscillates between curating, writing, research, community organizing, and DJ-ing under the moniker 'discourse', as a way of shaping a self-directed mix-mode research and curatorial practice. With an interest embedded in contemporary art, political history and decoloniality, alternative organizational practices, new media and audio-visual cultures, her curatorial projects include exhibitions, screenings, reading circles, discursive events and screenings, to other forms of interdisciplinary and collaborative work, including music and dance events. She has realized two exhibitions at Framer Framed in Amsterdam, respectively The End of This Story (And the Beginning of All Others) in 2015, and Voices Outside the Echo Chamber: Questioning Myths, Facts and Framings of Migration (2016). Other recent curatorial projects include I Speak in Tongues at 37PK, Haarlem (2017), Conversation Circle, at W139 (2017), and Grada Kilomba: Illusions at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam (2017).
