Polonia Bytom

The leitmotif of this carefully composed narrative of photographs and collages by Anna Okrasko, Justyna Chmielewska, and Joanna Bębenek is states of movement and stagnation, and the relationships between them.

Solitude Atlas

The Solitude Atlas is published in time for the 25 year anniversary of Akademie Schloss Solitude, which celebrates its jubilee with this special publication. Former and current fellows describe in 145 contributions the city they are currently living. By this a very special atlas was created, which confesses to a subjective view of the world. With this publication, the Akademie hopes to convey something of the knowledge and experience it has been able to glean by virtue of its many guests and fellows.

Solitude Quotidien/Alltäglich
May 2010
