"In the artistic context, guerrilla actions are associated with street art, performance, activist art, and imply unconventional, unauthorized, and sometimes disturbing performances. Guerrilla performances and artistic works often have the aesthetic characteristics of ad hoc preparation and rapid street performance followed by an escape. For artist and designer Lina Kovačević, the form of rebellion is speculative design, and the actions she carries out in public spaces are complemented by objects - elaborated objects of desire designed for that purpose, completely diverging from guerrilla aesthetics. But even more intriguing is the expected result of rebellion - which is the realization of closeness."

(from the preface by Olga Majcen Linn)
