Svetlana Marchenko


During her first studies in St. Petersburg, Svetlana gained both theoretical and practical experience as a cultural manager. At her next academic station — Media and Theatre Studies in Basel, Bern and Vienna — she dealt with topics such as human-machine dichotomy, the theory of presence and intermediality, as well as the media specifics of photography. Afterwards, she lived out her curiosity for questions of image perception through the interdisciplinary master's programme 'Visual Communication and Image Research' at the HGK Basel. At the same time, she was involved in the organization of numerous cultural events and in corporate communications.

Since June 2019 Svetlana has supported the iart communication team. At the same time she dedicates herself to her preference for photography as a member of BelleVue - Place for photography and is active as a project manager for HELGA - The Swiss Meeting for Scenography and Communication.
