Ania Nowak is interested in love as a political category. Assuming that love can have a critical potential with regards to existing power relations and understanding intimacy she believes that it is a practice of improvisation, empathy and meaning making. In this research, she focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of love as we know it today to think of ways we spend time, collaborate and work together.
