WHAT IS BASK?

BASK was created as a platform for dialogue between Wrocław and San Sebastian, the Wrocław's twin European Capital of Culture 2016. Its aim is to look for common points between Polish and Basque cultures and to prepare space for undertaking creative activity and gaining practical artistic skills during workshops and cultural events. Each summer, during a 3-day long event, one forgotten localization in the city of Wrocław turns into the centre of dialogue and exploration of the Basque culture. This year's edition of the event will take place on July 1-3, in the villa formerly owned by Oswald Püschel at Parkowa 1-3 in Wrocław.

The ‘Wrocław — Backyard Door’ project is an element of the Visual Arts component of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 programme. The project consists of artistic interventions within the public space of the City of Wrocław, with an emphasis on its backyards — by which we mean large communal spaces usually enclosed by several townhouses or blocks of flats. All of the artistic activities were based on cooperation with the residents.

The exhibition rediscovers the oeuvre created in the first half of the twentieth century by the Wrocław-based artist – Wacław Szpakowski – who deserves a lasting position in contemporary art history. Each drawing by this pioneer of abstractionism is just one continuous line that creates stunning, quasi labyrinth-like, rhythmical form of visual and temporal character.

WHAT IS BASK?

 

BASK was created as a platform for dialogue between Wroclaw and San Sebastian, sister European Capitals of Culture 2016.

National Forum of Music, Pl. Wolności 1

In the period of globalisation and unification, the artists define the places in which their live and create anew, thus giving them a new identity. The characteristic creative atmosphere of Wrocław breaks the progressive unification and leads us to think that the genius loci of the city manifests itself the best in the creations by artists, who have been working here for seven decades.

The title of the exhibition “The Germans Did Not Come” makes a perverse reference to a widely spread fear among Wroclaw’s inhabitants (which persisted many years past the war) that the return of the previous inhabitants, Germans, triggers a series of consequences.  It also refers to an ironic work titled “Disassembly” created by Jerzy Kosałka  from “The Germans Have Come” series.

Come and see the most famous exhibitions of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016. On this special occasion – the Closing Weekend of the ECoC Wrocław 2016 Programme – admission to selected museums in Wrocław will be free. For three days, the most famous exhibitions that visited Wrocław will be available to everyone.

An exhibition of works of Eduardo Chillida, an artist born in Basque Country, is a gesture of a dialogue with the partner Capital of Culture 2016 – San Sebastian. Chillida is more than one of the most important Spanish artists of the second half of the 20th century, he is one of the most important sculptors in the world, one of the leading representatives of abstraction, whose works can be found in the most prestigious collections and museums in the world. The premise of the project is presentation of relationships between Chillida’s works and music. The starting point is the sculpture itself as a musical metaphor, an acoustic element, an instrument encouraging to aesthetic and musical reflection. That is why there will be enriched with two additional elements of particular importance: a sound installation by the composer Gorka Alda and the opening concert of José M. Sáncheza-Verdú. The exhibition is organized in cooperation with Chillida-Leku Museum and BWA Wrocław – Galleries of Contemporary Art.

The project consists in the realization of tens of artistic interventions in neglected parts of Wroclaw, primarily in backyards. Artists working in a given space will cooperate with residents to develop solutions which would combine the ideas and needs of both sides. Artistic interventions should make the residents aware of their strength – the fact that they can have a real impact on their immediate surroundings. In the project Wroclaw – Backyard Door, changes in appearance and infrastructure of the backyards from the title are important, but the most important are the changes which perhaps will occur in humans.
