Fountain house


Reexamining the fountain:  In contemporary urban as well as cultural discussions we see a renaissance of the idea of common space, in german either translated as „Allmende“ or „Gemeinschaft“ depending on a relationship towards (city) space or social structures. This is related to the dipole of the private vs. the public as the two dominant categories of the 20th century. Now in the 21st century we find many ways of being together as part of daily life, be it through social media or through community gardens or similar locally rooted projects.

Hotel Shabby Shabby_Coming Soon_small

HOTEL shabbyshabby

  Have you ever wondered why hotel rooms are rarely places you’d gladly fall asleep or wake up in? They often present you with ghastly carpets,antiseptic surfaces, perfidious artworks and dreadfully decorated walls, not to mention a disappointing view and a catastrophic hotel bar. Is it so difficult to design a room where someone would enjoy spending a night? A room that offers a unique view, a divine bed and is as snug a beaver’s den? more

Re-cycling, up-cycling, pre-cycling – we like to use materials with a story. We se the material world as a world of flows and transfigurations and our intervention in it aas a moment of diversion of these flows. We like to borrow stuff from the system of resource cycles, we like to cut short the cycles of resource – product – trash to explore ways to focus more on imagination and less on consumption of  ressources. In many project we use discarded materials as old doors, windows, furniture, bottles, car door to create new spaces. For temporary projects we extract elements form the production cycle and return them at the end of the projects.



The urban transformation process in the cities of the former GDR was for a long time framed as a process of shrinkage. Underlying to this is a fundamental change from a socialist to a capitalist economy. Workplaces were lost, career paths disrupted, social contexts dissolved. At the same time, the peaceful end of the socialist regime was the beginning of a big utopian hope to a society which is more inclusive, democratic, fair and free.




The GREATED FUTURES is a vision of a space in a post-oil-shock-scenario, where today merges with the past, by referring to metaphoric narratives of past visions of the future. It is shown as part of the exhibition “regress / progress” at the The Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw. more
