The Art of Sharing: Meet reSITE’s and KUNSTrePUBLIK residents

This spring reSITE and KUNSTrePUBLIK announced four two-month residencies at the Center for Art and Urbanistics / Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (ZK/U) in Berlin. The goal of the residencies is to produce contemporary artistic positions and analyses related to the theme: Share your heart. Share your city. Who are the residents whose work will epitomize sharing and collaboration in cities?

Lydia Karagiannaki is formally trained in architecture and has engaged in design, editorial and research projects centered around community engagement and cultural critique. Her most current research focuses on the topic of domesticity, identity construction and cultural reproduction with the aim of realizing a multicultural “living room in the public space.”

Olga Labovkina is a graduate of the Vaganova Ballet Academy’s Scientific-Creative Laboratory of the Composition of Modern Forms of Dance magistracy. She has collaborated with choreographers from around the world and is currently working as an independent choreographer with collectives in Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and Lithuania.

Anastasia Eggers and Ottonie von Roeder are a design-duo working in the field of speculative and critical design, graphic design and cultural education. Their most recent work explores the phenomena of collective intimacy and public bathing. Together, these residents offer fresh perspectives on collaborative efforts in contemporary urbanity.
