"My artistic practice is set on multi-disciplinary research and thus generates various forms: essay films, book works or performances, both in art and public spaces. Always based on observations from reality and on narrative practices, I juxtapose layers of fiction and reality in order to create “transitory spaces” - these transits procreate mental spaces and mythological narrations. My work deals with urban space, collective memory and politics of images, offering metaphors about contemporaneous phenomena." Bettina Hutschek

Bettina Hutschek is present in Bucharest for a residency in the frame of the project “Transient Spaces - The Tourist Syndrome”, an interdisciplinary project on the topics of contemporary mobility, tourism and migration, encompassing research, theory, practice, through workshops, seminars, conferences and art exhibitions in Italy, Lithuania, Romania and Germany in 2009 and 2010.
