Mit Introduce #18 setzt die Schneiderei eine Serie fort, die die Einflüsse auf und Ausgangspunkte für künstlerisches Arbeiten zum Thema hat. Mit den Präsentationen von Sasha Auerbakh und Ivana Smiljanić möchten wir ein formales Setting schaffen in dem sich zwei Künstlerinnen, die sich bisher nicht kannten, obwohl sie in derselben Stadt leben, mit ihren Arbeiten gegenseitig vorstellen.
