Petar Matović


The book I am currently working on is based on the relation between the lyrical subject and the modern urban environment. More specifically, its main problem is (the new) sensibility in neoliberal economic environment. I would spend the time during the residency getting to know and studying Vienna’s architectonic heritage, as well as working directly on the book and reading the essential literature.
