Anastasia Eggers and Ottonie von Roeder are reviewing the phenomena of public bathing and reinventing the intimacy of a public space, seeing as how the public bath historically used to be a space where social classes mixed. From being a collective act during which people exchanged gossip that would be a driver of democracy or shared secrets under a dominant regime, bathing emerged into a practical action performed in private, reflecting the loneliness of living in contemporary cities.
By creating interventions in the city, Anastasia and Ottonie will explore the several aspects connected to collective bathing reflected in societal tendencies: for instance, how the design of public baths indicates the dynamics of social or gender segregation in society or how can design contribute to a transition from individual routines in hygiene to public rituals.
