Project info

In my practice I’m particularly interested in urban space, modern architecture and postwar modernism. The main strategies of my artistic work are dokumentation and intervention. During my stay in Vienna I’m particularyparticularly interested in Alterlaa housing estate and architecture of public swimming-pools.
