The task of the Studio of Spatial
Activities is to try to identify and shape the creative space in
which we move and act. Students describing their places and
exchanging point of views with representatives of other places,
create communication zones. Studio works not only in the Academy,
but also in the city. We want to pay attention to the social and
political problems regarding the space where we move. We try to
help the young people to find the identity
(including artistic) before facing off with the pressure of
success. Studio invites people who share their experience and
skills of understanding Space itself, which is very close to the
structure of the porcelain.
