October 14, 2020 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Culture Zone Wrocław and Fandom invite you to a meeting with the participants of the AIR Modernism residency, which is a summary of their research on Wrocław’s modernism. The event officially ends the month-long stay of foreign residents in Wrocław.
Notes from Wrocław’s modernism
Three projects by Diana Felber (Germany), Levan Asabashvili (Georgia) and Marta Smektała (Poland), although different in many respects, pay attention to how to study the urban fabric in difficult times. The residents visited the most important points of modernist architecture on the map of Wrocław, worked with archives and, despite pandemic difficulties, participated in city walks, cinema screenings as part of MIASTOmovie festival or events organized by local institutions. We encourage you to talk with residents about their stay in Wrocław and how they used and will use the information collected over several weeks.
Entry and safety of the meeting
The conversation will be conducted in English. Please take precautions, wear masks and disinfect your hands during the meeting. Entry is free, but due to our common safety and limited number of places, registration is required. If you are interested in participating, please send a message with your name and phone number ti the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thinking about your safety and therefore the limited number of available places, we decided to also live broadcast the meeting on AIR Wro Facebook. We are also waiting for your questions, which you can ask in your comments.
An international and partnership based residency project focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to modernism. The purpose of the residence is to map how Wrocław, Chemnitz and Tbilisi reflected pan-European ideas, i.e. modernism, what was their status in the past and what is it today, and how changes in time and space (East / West) influenced modernism and its perception? The residence is also to network Polish, German and Georgian artistic circles and institutions. Selected residents had the opportunity to conduct a field study on the basis of which they created their own research / art / design projects. The project was carried out in cooperation with the Culture Zone Wrocław, the City of Chemnitz applying for the title of ECoC 2025, Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz and Tbilisi Architecture Biennial and will be developed until 2025.
