Documentation

I am very proud to be part of Artist- in- Residence programme of MQ. For me it was very beneficial to have one month free to start to think in another way, not to work only but to have time to think. By pure accident there was the exhibition in Kunsthalle too, which was concerned with the same topic. So I tried to be open minded to everything I have met on the way in the city and always I was thinking how could it be transformed to Prague. I appreciated the meeting of the Palestinian artist and the curator from Tel Aviv at the one table or personally in the bars or events in Vienna as well as all another curators and artists from the programme. I prepared the issue of the architectural magazine ERA 21 about the inspiration from progressive cities in Europe: Vienna, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Zurich www.era21.cz/novinka_E.asp?NEW_ID=93 in April 2014 and I visited all the sites which are described in the magazine and put some of the inspiration for Prague on my FB page. I am also preparing the new issue foir ERA 21 (2/2015) on „the Baugruppe“ (co-housing projects) now and probably two or three projects from Vienna will be the part of it. I personally visited Vinzi and Sargfabrik during August and met the people who live there to speak with them about the projects.
As the other part of my residency I visited Semper Depot to do the images and short videos about the building and also visited Vienna archive to find the old plans of the buildings and library to find books about the building and about Semper.
