opening: 09.09.2022 / 6.00 pm
curator: Artur Chrzanowski
The title of the exhibition refers to the individual experiences of the invited artists in dealing with the actual and everyday multiculturalism of Lodz. From today's perspective, the process of diversification of societies is unpredictable, often dependent on external factors. However, it is a fact. How many cultures make up the present of Lodz? Or are we already surrounded by one common multicultural everyday life?
The authors invited to cooperate are people connected to Lodz - living here or originating from here, finding inspiration for their work here. People who know and experience this city. Close ones.
The exhibition consists of realizations, each of which is a separate story about Lodz as a common city/world from the perspective of today's mixed global society. People from different parts of the world - acquaintances, friends, neighbors - were invited to create them. The premise of such cooperation is to creatively bring together individuals representing different nationalities, ethnic groups, backgrounds, circles and generations, living in Lodz - state and stateless, residents, emigrants, visitors, newcomers.
Many thanks to the owner of the tenement for opening its unique space for us.
The Rector of the Wladyslaw Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz has assumed honorary patronage of the exhibition.
