The project Opustená (re)kreácia has been focusing on the topic of the abandoned architecture of the town Trenčianske Teplice since 2011. One of the most important cultural monuments of the former Czechoslovakia, the spa house Machnáč, has been falling into ruin since 2001. The team of authors, active in various artistic disciplines, decided to react to this situation and create an artwork that would support the survival of the abandoned Machnáč.
