Information about the call

Lublin invites 2 artists for creative work within the framework of the festival Open Form. Wilenska organized in cooperation with the Lublin Museum. The artistic residency, which will last from August 5 to 11, 2024, is carried out within the framework of the Annual Festival, which is part of the CreArt 3.0 project, co-financed under the European Union Creative Europe program.

The subject of the artistic interventions will be the market square on Wilenska Street, which is part of a residential complex designed by Oskar and Zofia Hansen in the 1960s. The architecture of the market is inscribed in its surroundings. It is somewhat neglected now, but it is where the life of the housing complex takes place, vendors offer a variety of food products, and the Housing Development Museum operates there. A cultural scene promoting both local and international phenomena also functions there. The market on Wilenska Street is slowly becoming Lublin's Kreuzberg, a hotbed of progressive activities at the intersection of activism and art, on the margins of official politics. It is a complex structure, a unique mosaic of problems, potentials and ideas. It is also in a transitional phase, between the legacy of modernism and an unclear future. We invite artistic persons from partner cities to co-create the festival program with artists from Lublin.
