The practice of
Apolonija Šušteršič (born 1965 in Ljubljana, lives and works in Ljubljana and Amsterdam) touches on different aesthetical and political tendencies such as Conceptual art, Contextualism, institutional critique, and relational aesthetics. As an architect and artist, her work engages processes from both fields as well as applied design and other social sciences. Šušteršič's project can be described as putting into practice a “politics in space.” A “transdisciplinary,” collaborative approach as such, it is absolutely indispensable when analyzing contexts as variegated as urban life, art museums, and other institutions and social spaces. Apolonija Šušteršič's artistic research combines theory and practice to pursue a method of reflection in which a momentary situation of critique leads to activate constructive alternatives and spaces for hope.
