By alteration of different places - real and fictional places - new, sensible situations come into existence. As the result of it ́s dynamics, processes take shape: influencing and modeling the being of individuals and communities at the same time.

By evoking and documenting the multi-layered story of an unused building, Barbara Ipsics ́s video questions our actual, potential roles, both in poetical and ironical form. Starting from the changes in architectural and property relations, Csaba Nemes refers to social progresses in his work, portraying a former holiday home from the time of socialism, which is functioning as a temple now. The paintings of Łukasz Stokłosa - based on movie- experiences - recall inner processes, with showing the transition of desired places or locations beard in mind. The dream-bubbles of Dóra Palatinus are venues of real desires, but not projected into the past as it would ensue from the traditional form of her objects, but showing consciously planned spaces of the future, as venues of happiness. With her film Fire-Followers Karolina Breguła reacts on the phenomena, what happens, if the most operative behavior and modi of a society are exaggerated. It shows how the tragically repeating events of the past determine the everyday life ́s tactics until the present. Besides, her work points out real and imaginable roles within the art-scene with all their grotesque, racy and self-ironical forms.
