In 2021 100th birthdays of three Polish authors: Tadeusz Różewicz, Stanisław Lem and Julia Hartwig are celebrated. Therefore this year’s street art activities will be devoted to them.
The project is an attempt to find meeting points of their works. It will consist of a mural dedicated to the Authors as well as a film documenting the creation of the mural in Lublin and introducing these three figures. The authors of the project describe their artistic idea as follows: "We started with the punctuation point as something and nothingness as its denial and element of doubt. All writers and poets ask questions, and the answers (if there are any) are not very optimistic." In the film, the authors will weave their interpretative story, also leaving the audience a lot of space for imagination.
Różewicz-Lem-Hartwig CreArt Street Art Project will be presented to public for the first time during the Cross-Border Cooperation Congress in Lublin on October 7th, 2021.
