public works is a London based art and architecture practice, working within and towards public space. All public works projects address the question how the public realm is shaped by its various users and how existing dynamics can inform further proposals. I’m a founding member and have been closely involved from 1999 to 2012.
myvillages is an international artist initiative, founded in 2003 by Kathrin Böhm, Wapke Feenstra and Antje Schiffers. The interest of myvillages.org is the rural as a space for and of cultural production.
