Marjetica Potrč is an artist and architect based in Ljubljana and Berlin. Her work typically focuses on community-based projects that demonstrate a concern for sustainability and participatory design. These projects facilitate individual empowerment, problem-solving tools and strategies for self-sustainability. Key projects include ‘Dry Toilet’ (Venezuela), ‘The Soweto Project’ (South Africa) and ‘Of Soil and Water’ (England), a public art project and chemical-free swimming pond located on a construction site in London. Until 2018 Potrč was a professor of social practice at Hamburg’s University of Fine Arts/HFBK. Here she discusses her practice, which merges art, architecture, ecology and anthropology.
