Welcome to the next episode of the morning program Awakenings! This Thursday (13.08) at 9:00 am, among other things, Lukasz Harat will discuss shadow architecture and how to combine art with the subject of bazaars and public toilets with Aleksandra Wasilkowska.
The online program Awakenings is carried out as part of the interdisciplinary Street Cloud project - a microtelevision dedicated to urban culture, organized by the anti-RAMA collective - presenting innovations and trends in urban culture sectors related to science, art, architecture, urban planning and design. The wake-up calls are conversations about the beginnings of careers, experiences gained during studies and childhood with well-known people from the creative industry.
For the next episode, Lukasz Harat has invited architect, artist and set designer Aleksandra Wasilkowska. They will talk about the role of women in the urban industry in the broadest sense, whether the combination of architect, artist and set designer is not self-destructive, where she gets ideas for her spatial installations and why it was worth returning to her native Warsaw after time spent in France, which is innovative in the context of pro-collective design.
Aleksandra Wasilkowska has been running an architectural studio in Warsaw since 2007, simultaneously publishing books, including the Architecture of the Shadow series, and creating exhibitions, installations and stage designs. She was vice president of the Warsaw branch of the Association of Polish Architects, co-creating the strategy of Warsaw Local Centers. In 2010, together with Agnieszka Kurant, she represented Poland at the 12th International Architecture Biennale in Venice.
