Collaboration, acquiring knowledge, the power of friendship and community building are important factors of Why Quit's work. They have been working together closely since 2016, and the Why Quit initiative, launched in 2019, is the result of their experience, including the establishment of the bottom-up Wykwit Gallery (2015-2019), the Wykwitex Group (since 2017) and many joint projects, e.g. during a residency in KulturKontakt in Vienna (2018). Why Quit is a nomadic initiative which, apart from acting in a duet, attracts creative people to critically comment on social, political and economic situations. They believe that art can be one of the tools to put pressure on the structures that make up the harmful system.
