Open call for AIR Modernism

Are your creative or research activities focused on the theory and practice of modernism? Culture Zone Wrocław in cooperation with partners from two cities has created an interdisciplinary residential project AIR Modernism

Together with Chemnitz 2025 and Tbilisi Architecture Biennal, we invite artists from various fields, as well as architects, designers and researchers, to participate in the September residency in Wrocław, and in the future also Chemnitz and Tbilisi.  

The international and partnership based residency project focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to the theory and practice of modernism. The aim of the residency is to map how Wroclaw, Chemnitz and Tbilisi reflected pan-European ideas, i.e. modernism, what was their status in the past and what is today, and how changes in time and space (East / West) have influenced modernism and its perception?

The residence is also intended to network Polish, German and Georgian artistic environments and institutions. Selected residents will have the opportunity to conduct a field study, on the basis of which they will create their own research / artistic / creative notes. AIR Modernism gives the opportunity to hold a residence in Wrocław, and in the future also in other two cities. 

Call for proposals: 20.08.2020
Results: by 1.09.2020
Residence: September 2020

The recruitment is addressed to visual artists, designers, architects and researchers of various fields living, born, studying or creating in one of the three cities: Wroclaw, Chemnitz, Tbilisi.

What do we offer?

Accommodation in the very centre of Wrocław, financial support during the stay – per diems or fees, covering the costs of travel from and to Wrocław. The organizers also offer to organize a meeting with the audience and to present their research project.

How to apply in the recruitment process?

By the 20th of August you should send by email (airwro@strefakultury.pl) your application: CV, portfolio or website, description of the project and justification of references to the theory of modernism (no more than 2000 characters) and a cover letter justifying your wish to participate in the project.
