A trilogy of experimental publications and workshop/discussion formats in collaboration with transmediale Berlin, Critical Media Lab Basel and designer Moritz Greiner-Petter: Three Questions on Media Criticality (2015), Unmaking: 5 Anxieties (2016), Impossible Escapes (2017).

Three Questions on Media Criticality (2015) began a conversation about media-critique, what it might constitute and interrogate. The fieldbook-style publication provoked discussions at transmediale, converting authored contributions into disassociated documents for public interrogation. Unmaking: 5 Anxieties (2016) introduced a conversational game via the design of an alternative, critically-oriented “creative problem solving” card deck. For Impossible Escapes (2017), a foldout map highlights problematic modern tendencies to “escape”, from technology, the human, or planet earth, and discussions took place at the exits of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt venue space.
