Sanz Serif, a makeshift nickname earned as a result of my typographic likes, is the umbrella under which I present the diverse facets of my work: academic research on architecture and urbanism, design speculations, graphic design, curatorial and editorial work, and writings developed individually or collaborately, in institutional settings or independently.

Current focus: Workscapes.

Fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude 2017-2019

I am happy to announce that I have been selected as one of the 2017-2019 fellows in Architecture of the Akademie Schloss Solitude, by the international jury around the jury chairman Kaiwan Mehta.

6,600 artists and scientists from 158 countries have downloaded the application form for the selection of the sixteenth generation of Solitude fellows and among them 1,900 candidates from 106 countries finally applied. All in all 64 fellows (34 female and 30 male) from 27 countries were selected by the jury. 461 months from a total of 542 months have already been granted. The fellowship amounts to 1,150 Euro per month. The fellowship program of Akademie Schloss Solitude is thereby largely settled until the end of 2019.

 Fellows belong to the following disciplines: Architecture (design, landscape architecture, urban planning), Visual Arts (including performance art), Performing Arts (stage design, dramatic texts, dramaturgy, musical theater, performance, direction, drama, dance), Design (fashion, costume, product and furniture design, visual communication), Literature (essay, criticism, poetry, prose, translation), Music/Sound (interpretation, sound installation, sound performance, composition), Time-based Media (including video, video installation, documentary and fiction film) and Web-based Media (web design, web development/coding, web art and digital journalism). Furthermore, scholars, scientists and professionals from the disciplines of the Humanities, Economy/Economics (Urban Policy) and History & Social Sciences (its practices of writing and politics in the contemporary) were invited to apply.

The sixteenth generation will also be the last one under the direction of Jean-Baptiste Joly, founding director of Akademie Schloss Solitude who has been running and developing the program for almost 30 years and who will retire in March 2018. The name of the future director who will take over in April 2018, will most likely be announced in fall 2017 by the Ministry for Research, Science and the Arts of the State of Baden-Württemberg.
