Welsh Crucible 2017
Sarah obtained her PhD in German Literature at Freie Universität Berlin (Germany) and was appointed DAAD-Lektorin at The University of Sheffield in 2012. Here, she taught German Studies and Language alongside extending her research on performance studies and artistic research. In September 2016 she was appointed Lecturer in German at Bangor University. Her current research project reassesses the Avant-Garde and its impact on contemporary art, politics and society, with a particular focus on the German filmmaker and performance artist Christoph Schlingensief.
She is keen to explore the transformative power of participatory art and performances. For this she seeks interdisciplinary and experimental collaboration: How can Arts & Humanities, Artists and Art Institutions work together to examine this transformative power and its impact for our political lives?
