Andrea Kalinová graduated with an MA degree from the Studio of Fine-Art Photography under the supervision of Milota Havránková at the Department of Photography and New Media, Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava (VŠVU) and got her PhD. at the Department of Intermedia and Multimedia VŠVU under the supervision of Anton Čierny. She initiated the Abandoned (re)creation platform. She deals with the overlap between art and activism, focused mainly on saving 20th century architecture. She dealt with this topic also in her dissertation thesis called “Arts Strategies as Methods to Support and Protect Endangered Architectural Monuments”. In 2018 she finished a documentary called “Off Season” about the Machnáč sanatorium in Trenčianske Teplice. She co-authored the Care Architecture, Off Season and C20: Guide to the Architecture of Trenčianske Teplice books.
