— CANCELED! —

Who are you keeping your fingers crossed for during the World Cup?
What influences your choice?
Do you apply the category of sport competition to everyday life?
How often does the opponent become an enemy?

The artistic activity with Piotr Bujak has been inspired by the increasing brutality of politics and the motto “Bread and circuses!” that is currently manifesting itself as the Football World Cup in Russia. The workshop will be devoted to the problem of smooth transformation of the category of opponent into the category of enemy. Together with the artist we will think what underlies the process, what its negative consequences are for individuals and society, and how cultural activism should react to this phenomenon. Since one of the prime reasons for aggression is fear, the idea for the workshop is based on a symbolic “imaginarium of fears” that is capable of affecting our perception of the world.
