Open call for projects for the Wrocław 70/20 Symposium

50 years ago the Wrocław ‘70 Visual Arts Symposium took place – an extraordinary event that brought artists, critics and theoreticians together. It became the platform to exchange ideas and create new directions in Polish art. This event became legend, and it is discussed to this day.

50th anniversary of the event held in Wrocław is an opportunity to see it from a different perspective – to look more closely at its legacy, get inspired by its past… and build a new one.

Wrocław 70/20 Symposium is a grassroots and social initiative created by a local artistic group – diversed team of curators, critics, artists, educators, academics, animators, activists, and cultural managers. They represent various forms of activity, collaborating with museums, galleries, and cultural institutions of an established reputation, as well as recently founded NGOs or independent artistic groups.
