During my stay at MuseumsQuartier I want to focus on meeting professionals from MQ and also other institutions, as curators, culture managers and artists. I would like to get to know their way of work and to invite them to our emerging institution Nova synagoga / kunsthalle Zilina to talk about their experiences. My aim is to learn about of the most progressive ways of exhibition-making and its combining with vivid accompanying program. My plan is also to introduce in MQ our work in Zilina and discuss with both professionals and public our approach towards organising exhibitions, discussions and other types of cultural events.
During my residency I want also to get in contact with media art scene in Vienna which is connected with my professional activities as a curator and critic of media art.
