Parallel to her artistic practice, Arthur works in Brussels as a producer, writer, copy-editor and translator. Currently, she is working with Auguste Orts (BE) and is as a researcher on the art-based research project Six Formats on the format ‘Screening’, which is run by Ingrid Cogne and Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein, funded by FWF-Peek, and hosted by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Arthur’s writing on moving image has recently been published by Sabzian (BE).
