Hello, I’m Verena –

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.

I am looking for ways to contribute in friendly and respectful ways, so that we can all do our best to create more equality and actual freedom. Or wonder together what that means and what that could look like.

Parts of this website are in German only. Please ask if there’s anything that you don’t understand and would like to know more about.

Make Out Magazine is a queer feminist zine, of which three issues were published between 2012 and 2015. There's Mixtapes, DIY projects, Interviews and more. And you can now see it all here.

Transnational Queer Underground

In 2009, whilst living in Ukraine, I started a website called Transnational Queer Underground. You can read all about what it did and means on the TQU website.

These are my four favorite projects which I organized for TQU:


More than 50 artists participated in this project and you can see all of their work online. I curated 5 exhibitions with some of the artworks in Tallinn, Sofia, Podgrica, Prague and Berlin.

Struggeling with the tension between sellout and necessity of Pride Marches, I interviewed Pride organizers in some regions, that you wouldn't first think of, when it comes to LGBTIQ* Pride.

History has been mostly written by white men. So we set out to write our own: OUR_STORY. Wonderful story submissions that will make you question what you thought you knew.

TQU Photo Competitions

This has been so much fun. One topic and submissions truely from all around the world. It's so wonderful to see so many perspectives and approaches on the same topic together.
