Description Change this

Case Study: Home focuses on the everyday living situation in transition. The project examines the relationship between the individual and the community, analyzing privacy and its different forms within the process of “homeing,” installing the space with the generators of good feeling, raising questions of identity and one’s position within the community, presenting forms of communication, and researching personal space and the definition of its boders. The project followed several research stages and was publicly presented in different formats. The fist stage was an exhibition in Škuc Gallery in Ljubljana, followed by lectures, discussions, and performances. The research material in this case was author's subjective involvement in the living-homeing situation within the Living Community at Domselaerstraat 66, Amsterdam (DS 66). In the context of the exhibition she acted as a connecting link —a curator communicating between the public and the invited artists.

The title refers to the Case Study Houses —a program which was developed in the USA after the Second World War where several major architects were commissioned to design and build inexpensive and efficient model homes o address the American residential housing boom. This experiment in American residential architecture was sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine.
