Maria Guggenbichler thinks and un-thinks, laughs, dances, plays, collaborates, doubts, listens, talks, walks, organizes, works and sabotages, publishes and hides, learns and un-learns, and spoils the broth with too many cooks, fellow strangers, and friends. Maria works in long-term and close collaborations and friendships. Together with Amal Alhaag, Maria initiated and ran the Side Room, a platform for ex-centric cultural practices and thinking (2013-2016). They have been collaborating on many other events, programs, and pranks. Maria lives and works between Amsterdam and the mountains.
