Artist Statement 

In my work I am interested in the question of how we live together in the contemporary society. Nowadays our world is mostly organized according the neoliberal values of growth, efficiency and profit. Our socio-political environment is designed and governed by authorities and experts and the socialist alternative is demonized with the reference to suppression of individuals in the past Soviet and todays China. I see the field of art as a potential to explore an alternative way of living together, to imagine and practice social interactions and use of resources that are based on values of sharing, equality and bottom-up self-organization. I am for an art that stands outside of the established structures and allows such explorations. My main focus is on long term projects that invite people to construct space together and to think about ways how it can be organized and performed beyond the values of capital.
