What’s the structure of a typical day like for you?
My typical day is to wake up, drink coffe, feed my green iguana Pepe (by the way it`s already 22 years old!) and the dogs, go for a walkies, read e-mails, arange appointments, meetings, delegate trainees, organize photoproductions or transports of artworks, meetings with collectors, other artists, curators, organize shows/exhibitions actually i don`t really have a “typical day”. Every day is filled with different topics, depending on what is to be done. One day a week I´m teaching at European School of Design „Photography & Pictorial Language“.
What are some of your favourite source for information?
My facourite source for information are exhibitions, talks, calls, internet, social networks.
How social media influence your life?
Through social networks I´m more easy able to stay in touch with my foreign friends, artists, curators, collectors. That`s very helpful, I can see whatever they are doing, exhibitioning or working on.
