    Interview with Artist Alicja Rogalska
    WE NEED TO CREATE ALTERNATIVES FOR THE FUTURE AND WE NEED TO CREATE THEM NOW, COLLECTIVELY Alicja Rogalska in conversation with Roma Piotrowska Roma: In this interview series, I visit artists in their studios. We’ve met at your home because you don’t have a studio. Is it a deliberate decision? Alicja: No, it isn’t. I just can’t afford a studio.
