Why did you decide to take part in this project? What is your interest within the engagement with the „reading format“?

In my works I usually make an installation, montage, where texts / video / photographs are coexisting in an exhibition space. I wonder, if text can survive divided between several worlds – it can still proceed with his life as a literature, written word, and at the same time be a sound, picture, create context for photography and video. I hope with other participants we will try to explore some risky areas, where you don’t know anymore, in which textual / visual / social reality you are as listener and reader.
