Together with Manuel, Mira and Gerald, Maribel communicates ERSTE Foundation’s mission and projects to the world. Maribel is a Munich-born art historian, journalist, art critic and former press officer for EXPO 2000 in Hanover and documenta X in Kassel. After joining ERSTE Foundation in early 2007, she established the organisation’s communications department. She considers her job to be the most fulfilling she can imagine because it involves talking all day long about things she is deeply convinced of. Her latest passion is to make this platform a high-profile magazine covering interesting topics on civil society in CEE and beyond.
