A sociologist strongly interested in interdisciplinary work and urban sociology, who engages herself with the concepts of authenticity and performativity. The main subject of her thoughts is how and why people contribute to the formation of the city, urban planning and architecture, and the other way around. Her interests also lie in the "greening" of cities, and in the work with neighbouring communities. She works in Brno and lived in Košice and Berlin, where she worked for ZK/U - Centre for Art and Urbanistics. She is a performer, civic activist and takes photos on Zenit camera (http://lydiagres.tumblr.com/).
