Visual Culture and Art teacher offering up to Masters level in University

Methodology

From my experience in academia, I feel the importance of knowledge production is in the dialectic between students and teacher. I do not rely on a linear approach of the lecturer imparting knowledge to an assumed 'blank slate' (the student).

I have worked as a practising artist, exhibited in several parts of the world, as well as being a researcher and classroom teacher/lecturer. This allows me insight into the line of work that students in the arts are preparing for. I have supervised students at masters level who have graduated cum laude and gone on to become established art practitioners with a solid insight into contemporary theory.

I am driven by the intellectual growth in the artists (students) and how the power of thinking critically and creatively can inform and open consciousness to deeper meaning and change, in a fast paced society covered in glossy veneers and filters, promising instant gratification. With that said, contemporary culture and the energy of youth culture inspires my work. I have had the privilege to work internationally and continue to mentor some of my former students who have gone on to prestigious Universities such as La Sorbonne.

I enjoy working with individuals as well as with large groups of people in collective projects such as art interventions, curating, symposiums, workshops and social justice activism. My academic skills are multidisciplinary. I am deeply committed and engaged with the curriculum to keep pace with contemporary global events in the art world, and for example how today's technology excavates new discoveries that change and challenge the way we understand the world and, more especially, how we navigate the world of representation. I am dedicated to hone the development of each individual's personal and professional progress and support cultivating their individual expression by identifying the strength of each.

Simmi cares about the developing mind and is totally engaged with effective communication in a teaching context.
I have known her for over a decade during which time she has displayed a compassionate, open honest, and trustworthy nature. In her work she is professional, thorough and passionate about arts and culture. A pleasure to know, and to recommend.

Katja

Simmi is an inspiring teatcher, she has cultivated a love for language and art in me. She is friendly, warm and engaging and has great confidence in her students. Simmi’s teaching is deep and reflective. Her independence, bravery and challenge of all that has an opressive influence on empowerment and life in general has given me the courage and desire to work with my own expression through art. Thanks a lot Simmi!
