Angelika is committed to engaging with the essence of local culture, heritage and valued stories, and driving a continuous dialogue between local and international communities. In 2018, she co-founded with Donald Mak PF25 cultural projects, a non-profit organisation which aims to build mutual understanding, to develop an intercultural network and to generate creative energies between Basel and Hong Kong.

Her other curatorial projects include 'Dorothee Sauter: Geology, Cooking Hearts and other stories' (Basel, 2021); 'Hong Kong Video Talks' (Museumsnacht, Münchenstein, 2022); 'Difference / Indifference' by Isaac Chong Wai commissioned by Kunsttage Basel (Basler Münster, 2022) and the public programme for ‘Brice Marden: Inner Space’ (Kunstmuseum Basel, 2022).
