Etgar Keret visits the thinnest house in the world

Etgar Keret in his house - first morning

A famous Israeli writer Etgar Keret visited Warsaw to promote his new book, The Seven Good Years. The Polish edition was published in the beginning of October.

A part of Keret’s trip to Warsaw is a visit to his house on Chłodna 22 Street. This is the thinnest house in the world.

Keret was the first inhabitant when the house officially opened on October 20, 2012. Therefore it’s called The Keret House.

The world’s thinnest house was founded by Jakub Szczęsny, with the help of the Foundation of Polish Modern Art. The house, or rather an art installation is designed to cultural purposes. Under the international residence program many artists’ lectures and conferences will take place.

The Keret House measures 92 centimeters in its narrowest point, ­and 152 centimeters in its ­widest point. The triangular construction is 10 meters deep and 9 meters high.

Metal pipes keep the building almost 3 meters above the ground level, and visitors will have to climb a metal staircase and squeeze through a hole to enter it.

Keret in an interview for Culture.pl said (video below):

I think there is something specific about this project. It’s kind of proving that the impossible can be made – and this is something that is very inspiring for every artist.
