CV and list of publications   

I am trained as a cultural scholar and arts manager and wrote a PhD on artistic research. I have worked as a curatorial assistant at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, as a manager of the International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art, as a research fellow at Zeppelin University, Germany, and as a researcher and coordinator at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin. Since 2019, I am the managing editor of the Journal of Cultural Management and Cultural Policy and a reviewer for the Journal for Artistic Research.

I am using German and English both professionally and in private contexts every day, and I speak French and Spanish fluently. In addition to this passion for languages and writing, I love to sing, for example as member of the choir Vokalsystem in Berlin. Yoga and running are as much part of my life as is capturing impressions while traveling or walking the streets.


“No matter how many moving parts the project has, Johanna is always on top of everything and keeps me well-informed.”

– Jaclyn Arndt, freelance copyeditor, Vancouver

“Johanna knows how to turn complex topics into a reader-friendly form. I can also highly recommend her work as a translator (English to German).”

– Martin Hager, Edition 8, Berlin

“Johanna manages to tidy up the chaos of my ideas in an empathic and charming way, thereby strengthening my best thoughts.”

– Anna Chwialkowska, researcher and project coordinator, Berlin


“Johanna always finds the right words to moderate meetings with cooperation partners from the arts and sciences as well as to build bridges between different disciplines.”

– Katrin Klingan, curator, HKW Berlin

“Thanks to her outstanding language skills, Johanna has made a major contribution to the success of my Master’s thesis. To me, her precise and clear way of formulating in English is nothing less than art. Johanna has brought freshness and structure to my text wherever I had fallen into a certain rut. I am truly convinced that her language skills and her critical thinking are valuable for all written pieces.”

– Lisa Schneider, former Master’s student, Hertie School of Governance
