Description of the work:
1. Research trips:
The most important element of my research turned out to be a trip to the city of Kassel (Germany) - a city which organizes artistic event 'documenta' from 1955. Documenta is crossing borders. The artist always leaves something, a place for interpretation. However, it more or less narrows the scope of interpretation so that it can be understood.

Analysis of the creativity of the following artists:
Thomas Hirschhorn, Barbara Kruger, Hans Haacke, Peter Kogler, Joseph Kosuth.

During my stay in Kassel and conducting research in documenta archiv, I participated in the exhibition and guided tour: Guided Tour to the exhibition "artist portraits by Heinz Günter Mebusch" and one lecture documenta 1968 - A hot summer? Lecture by Tim Pickartz from the cycle From the documenta archiv. I also had a conversation with Martin Groh from Scientific Research documenta archiv.

Taking a research trip to Bydgoszcz and Toruń (Poland). Analysis of the artists work during following exhibitions:
"Multitude in Unity" - Offset, serigraphy, digital techniques and intermedia activities in Polish graphics.
"Color in Graphics" - 9th International Treinnale of Graphics.

2. Conducting mental map workshops and analysis of results.
3. Preparation of graphic works for the exhibition.
