The participants of the residency intend to work on the strategies of female artists in times of crisis. They wish to address the growing separatist tendencies and the longing for “tradition”, which in fact involves the revival of nationalist attitudes, patriarchal order and limitation of creative freedom. The artists intend to carry out artistic activities based on archives, biographies and site-specific works.
Frakcja – an intergenerational group of female artists and art theorists founded in 2016 in Łódź. The group operates within the framework of the Art and Documentation Association. Frakcja brings together artists who work individually in areas combining installation, performance, video-art, painting, sculpture, or research as art. The aim of the group is to popularize art created by women through joint exhibitions of group members, as well as meetings and discussions on the presence of women in the field of visual arts. The group operates on democratic principles, it has no leader and all the decisions are made jointly through debates and votes. The topics of interest to the group members include feminist issues and activities in dialogue with a specific space.
