European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 invites you to the first meeting in the “Immigrated Pieces” series, held under the A-i-R Wro Artist-in-Residence Programme.
 
Do you know where you are? Is it at all possible today to attach yourself to a concrete place, a point on the map? Perhaps these journeys of ours, more or less symbolic, perhaps they could be somehow described, drawn?
 
We would like to take you on a mental, imaginary journey (although it often assumes very physical manifestations). Artist Enrico Floriddia will conduct a workshop during which everybody will have an opportunity to become a cartographer. We will draw personal maps of migrating people, ideas and things.
 
Limited enrolment. Participation in the workshop is free of charge.
Please send your submissions by 2 November by writing to b.lis@muzeumwspolczesne.pl
 
The workshop will be conducted in English, but we will provide linguistic assistance.
 
 
Enrico Floriddia is an artist staying in Wrocław under the A-i-R Wro artist residency programme. Representing Poitiers, France, Floriddia is mostly interested in the interdisciplinary notion of memory, cultural capital, transition of ideas and their preservation in collective memory of social (and national) groups.
Defining reality by analysing objects, specifying their origins and tracking their journey through time and space has for some time constituted an important and increasingly popular subject in contemporary humanities, especially in disciplines such as sociology.
 
The A-i-R Wro Artist Residency Programme is co-financed by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.
