For this talk Adelaide will present her work: »erste Lektionen in Hydrologie (und andere Bemerkungen)«.

Our relations with cities are like our relations with people. We love them, hate them, or are indifferent toward them. On our first day in a city that is new to us, we go looking for the city. We go down this street, around that corner. We are aware of the faces of passers­by. But the city eludes us, and we become uncertain whether we are looking for a city, or for a person”. – Victor Burgin in “Some Cities”.

In “erste Lektionen in Hydrologie (und andere Bemerkungen)”, Adelaide Ivánova draws a parallel between the city of Recife, in Brazil, and the person of her father. The work investigates the analogies between the changes in her hometown Recife and the transformations in his life. Urban development, shark attacks, loss and Kung Fu.
