Episode 2

with Agata Siniarska, October 14th 20208

Agata has a background in literature, dance, choreography and likes to work as performer and dramaturg. She is also an author and has published several essays and  

Her favorite museum is the back stage and storage, the archive place of the contemporary art museum in Łódź.

Agata discovered her passion for conservation as she moved to the back stage of a museum in Poland. She is fascinated with the aspect of time in relation to artefacts, conservation and the length of a museum visit. She reflects on what it means to work alone, and how materials, bacteria or climate change have become her collaborators that she takes very serious.
