During his fieldwork Adam has been working with BRDA Foundation, actively participating in the OKNO project and investigating the process of reclamation, logistics and reuse of windows in the wartime reconstruction of Ukraine. For the exhibition catalogue titled “Poetics of Necessity,” Adam interviewed Andrii Kopylenko, the co-founder of District #1 Foundation, the main collaborator of the BRDA Foundation in Ukraine. The interview was an opportunity to learn more about the renovations of houses destroyed by the Russian invasion conducted by the Kyiv-based foundation. It was also an opportunity to discuss the common motives of the reconstruction of Warsaw after World War II and the current reconstruction works in Ukraine.
