Today at 7 pm, we’ll hold a public reading of Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky‘s texts, titled “ALLERHAND NÜTZLICHES”, in our installation EIN.KÜCHEN.BAU at SOHO Ottakring Biennale!
We are very happy to have Esther Csapo, moderator at the radio channel FM4 and actress, as our reader.
In addition to her planning and political activities, Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky wrote a lot; her literary oeuvre reaches from articles published in architecture journals and “women’s magazines” to autobiographical books about her career and professional ethos, and about her activities in the Resistance movement during the Second World War.
You are warmly welcome to join us!
— All of us continuously move about in spaces that have been designed by people; be it on the streets and squares, or indoors. The pleasures of literature are only accessible to those who read books or go to the theatre; the pleasures of painting are only accessible to those who visit exhibitions; the pleasures of music to those who attend concerts or switch on the radio, that is, only to people who seek these pleasures. Spaces, on the contrary, always affect the way people feel, either consciously or subconsciously. People simply cannot escape architecture. —
