Apolonija Sušteršič

Every two years, the café at Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst is redesigned by artists. For 2010 Apolonija Šušteršič and Meike Schalk have been incited to design the Café KAFIČ, which takes its inspiration from the Arabic coffee house tradition. Bosnian in origin but with its spelling and pronunciation adapted to Slovenian, the word KAFIČ means corner café. Šušteršič and Schalk are taking Leipzig’s various twin towns as a conceptual starting point for a café. Their intention is to create a place where different cultures can come together to establish and share space, a use which will also be made perceptible in the furnishing. The conception aligns itself to the various functions of the café space; at once a museum café, club, venue and rendezvous for various scenes.
