Mannigel primarily explores non-visual modalities and experience. Currently, she is investigating the affective perception-cognition of perspiration through performative events accompanied by surveys. This started with the olfactory dating performance Love Sweat Love (2016), upon invitation and in co-production with Mediamatic. She recently presented the first research results at the interdisciplinary Human Olfaction conference (2017). In addition, Mannigel's passion for smell led her to co-found the Smell Lab (2015) and to organize the Smell Lab reading group (2015). She is currently curating the Sensory Culture Club reading group (2016-) in Berlin.
