Survival Art Review is one of the most important reviews of contemporary art in Poland. It is an artistic undertaking aimed at maximum confrontation with the audience, realised in public space outside exhibition institutions. The artists of Survival in Wrocław take up the challenge of the urban jungle, carrying out their projects in abandoned places, public buildings and open spaces. One of the many hitherto unquestioned, but violently verified by the COVID-19 pandemic, pillars of social life is the equation of freedom and the right to move. This year, the review will look at the notion of mobility.
This year’s location is the Kotłownia – the building of the former Pafawag State Wagon Factory – in the past, one of Europe’s largest machine and rolling stock factories, now transformed into a service and residential part of the city. The history of the site offers an important context for the slogan “You Ain't Going Nowhere”, both as a trace of a different production order and direction, and in a literal exploration of the history of mobility.
