Poland | CCA ŁAŹNIA artist residency call



In 2014 CCA ŁAŹNIA in Gdańsk, Poland would like to invite 2 artists whose artistic practice will focus on the context of Gdansk, and/or its district New Port.  We are looking for artists who with the help of contemporary art practices undertake the discussion around places perceived in a certain, stereotype way. Artist is encouraged to reach out to the spaces in-between, out of the daily routine.

Currently New Port district is undergoing the process of revitalization including all its negative and positive aspects. We are therefore looking for works socially engaged and developed from a critical point of view. The aspect of reaching out to new audiences plays an important factor.

The entire 3rd floor of the newly rebuilt former bathhouse building in New Port district of Gdańsk is dedicated to artists. The building consists also of a cinema, library and workshop space, that can be all used by the artists according to their needs.  The living accommodation provides potential for many types of Art based activities to take place such as discussions, film screenings and social events. Artists Residency shall culminate in a form of a final work in the shape chosen by the artist.
