MAK! – Mobile Architecture Studio Tour in Scotland
MAK! is a caravan transformed into a mobile architecture studio. Every year it embarks on a journey across the Czech landscape, towns and villages offering its services when invited. From small scale project design to larger interventions in public space the studio offers consultancy, prepares sketches and also builds anything from benches to swimming baths, always engaging the local community.
Motherhood, maternal and art
As part of the project ‘Clipping the Church,’ this event brings together artist Tereza Bušková, curator Roma Piotrowska and photographer Marta Kochanek to investigate the position of a woman-mother-artist and explore representations of the maternal, and different models of family and motherhood, in art.
