(1982- ) German who is professionally active in the Television industry; an author whose first novel, Die Hochhausspringerin (2018; trans Sharmila Cohen as The High-Rise Diver 2021), is set in a very Near Future Dystopian world marked by an intense surveillance capitalism. The protagonists of the tale, the eponymous athlete and her struggling minder, are increasingly understood as fungibles in a world system that allows them no psychic privacy, which is seen as theft (see Dave Eggers; Media Landscape).
