I’m forced to write this text. The various headquarters of 60pages inform me on a regular basis that this text is missing. But it’s hard to write about a person that you have known more than 15 years but you lost track of several years ago – the last meeting in person was in 2010. That’s a clear view on me and my hermit behaviour, but doesn’t say anything about Annika. So I think she joined the big trail to Berlin in the nineties, first stop was Schipper & Krome (that’s where we met) and then according to some sentences she sent me she worked as a “gabelstaplerfahrerin, klavierlehrerin und chefredakteurin”. The gabelstapler experience might be the oldest one (pre Berlin?), the position as “chefredakteurin” was at sleek for several years and at the moment she is working as head of community at Die Zeit – online. She runs her own blog called Blitzkunst and if you follow her in images she seems to like to post her various working desks. Writing primarily in german is neither in relation to the name of her blog nor to the part-time autistic behaviour (she claims that in another sentence) it’s strictly based on her “pedanterie” which I mostly like but sometimes, really hate.
