The book On the power of creativity provides an overview of Studio Sonda’s fifteen years of work and activity. It tells the story about how a self-initiated project led to the existence of a creative studio that boasts award winning and globally represented projects. Moreover, Studio Sonda is situated in a village of only about 300 people, Vižinada (Istria), where it significantly affects the development of the environment in which it operates.
Exhibition and book promotion: ‘On the power of creativity’ – Studio Sonda, at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Istria in Pula. Opening and party, September 20th at 7 pm.

It’s so important and marvelous when it is about a hairdo, but all of a sudden so disgusting when you find it in the soup… At the same time, from a historical, mythological and economic point of view, it’s indeed vey important: the Hair!
