She studied Philosophy at Charles University in Prague (BA 2017) as well as Art History at the same university (BA 2018) and Theory and History of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (MA 2020). She is currently a PhD candidate in theory and history of contemporary art at the Academy of Fine Arts, under the supervision of Prof. Tomáš Pospiszyl. In her bachelor thesis, she dealt with the topic of technical reproduction of artworks, specifically in the texts of Karel Teige, Walter Benjamin, and Theodor Adorno. Her master's thesis, which was awarded the Rector’s Prize at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, was dedicated to the Czech physicist Vilém Santholzer, his interest in machine aesthetics, and his photographs of radiation. She subsequently published an article on this topic in the magazine Umění / Art.
