This website is just starting to grow into its existence. It’s an installation – carefully selected pieces of the past and thoughts about the future, attempts of showing reality and fiction; art.

From the ARCHIVE

This website is growing into the past and future. Over time I will publish more projects I’ve been involved in in the past in this archive.

For a start there is these two: My radio show balm&creak, which I moderated and edited for almost 16 years and MOM, a queer-feminist zine, which I published together with some friends from 2012 to 2015 .
