Art and Common Space Lecture: Apolonija Sustersic - Hustadt, Inshallah: Learning from a participatory art project in a trans-local neighbourhood
Artist and architect Apoloniha Susteric has focused on the social aspects of living environments manifested in art as well in architectural contexts since the 1990's.Her cross-disciplinary approach to creating works within urban environments leads to a socially engaged practice that brings together artists and architects, critics and curators that goes beyond art and architecture, and takes the form of everyday life.
Typically, Šušteršič’s broad ranging interest starts with a phenomenological study of space and continues its investigation into the social and political nature of our living environment. Her critical analysis of space usually focuses on the processes and relationships between institutions, cultural politics, urban planning and architecture. Situated somewhere between art and public services, Šušteršič’s practice creates and integrates communities of users who develop scenarios of alternatives and spaces for hope.
