Monika Karczmarczyk spent three months at the residency program of Aqb supported by Visegrad Fund. The project she was working on during the residency is a part of her PhD proposal and reflects on the influence of architecture, its material and spatial organisation, on a body in the process of dying through artistic research. The research happens through artistic work and is done in relation to other studies like sociology, theory of architecture, proxemics or thanatology. In Budapest she was mainly conducting the research on care movements and gestures around the ill body in Geriatrics Clinic and Nursing Science Center.
