About me

José María Durán Medraño. I hold PhDs in Art History and Philosophy. After a period of traveling and working in Edinburg, London and Berlin I got a position as a lecturer at the Institute of Art History of the Free University in Berlin that lasted just 1 semester. Now I hold a teaching position at the HfM Hanns Eisler also in Berlin.

I have two kids. And I enjoy Djing afrobeat music.
