Maximilian sees his research in a cultural studies tradition that values interdisciplinarity and radical contextuality. He is currently exploring collectivity, experimentation, and the relations between these two concepts, focusing on several selected cultural formations constituted around musical practice. His past work investigated manifestations of gender and politics in psychedelic/experimental “free folk” musics of the United States through qualitative, problem-centered interviews.
