Dr.Birger by Appointment was a series of one-on-one conversations and drawing sessions set up in an installation format.
The dialogues with Dr.Birger during Corona lock-down were centered on isolation, connectivity, and interdependence or something personal the visitors wanted to talk about. Dr.Birger visualized the conversations with the participants, incorporating her own responses into the drawings she simultaneously made. Each session lasted approximately 30 minutes.
The drawings are titled by the names of the participants.
