From the 10th of October 2007 at Prospekto gallery runs the photography exhibition of Joana Deltuvaite “Squatter Houses”.
In 2005 Culture ministry of the Republic of Lithuania awarded J. Deltuvaite with the prize for the best debut of the year. In 2006 young photographer won the competition organized by Alfred Toepfer Stiftung.
This award enabled J. Deltuvaite to travel through European major cities and visit squatter houses. The aim of the trip was to discover the values of Europe and answer to the question “what is important?”. In May 2007 at the photography house Deichtorhallen Hamburg was opened the exhibition “what is important” where three winners of the competition J. Deltuvaite, Pepa Hristova (Bulgaria) and Andre Lützen (Germany) presented their visions on European values. Exhibition at Prospekto gallery represents the works by Joana.
