During the lecture, Karin Písaříková will introduce her approach to art creation and also a few other artists who involve people in collaboration, social interaction or debate. This approach can be relevant today, as it gives voice to communities and can be helpful to architects and city makers.
This lecture is an event which accompanies the „Echoes of Praga” exhibition.
