My research focusses on DIY culture (see: What is DIY culture?) and different perspectives on this, for example information behaviour in DIY culture, autodidact learning in DIY activities and DIY culture and the special relationship with cultural institutions.


I am currently working on a pilot study, where I am developing a short survey in order to answer questions about the connection between DIY culture, autodidactism and information behaviour.

The survey is open now – please check it out!
