The Katarzyna Kozyra Foundation (Poland) in partnership with MeetFactory (Czech Republic), Easttopics (Hungary) and Björnsonova (Slovakia) invites young female* curators to participate in the Secondary Archive, an online platform for Central and Eastern Europe women artists. The aim of the project is to promote, discover and rediscover female artists and the most valuable phenomena of contemporary art from the female perspective in the Visegrad countries. The Archive will collect statements of female artists of three generations – those who were active before 1989, the generation who started their art practice right after the fall of the Communist regime, and the youngest artists, born after 1989. It will serve as an international source of information about Central and Eastern European female art for both art professionals and the wider audience. The project is supported by the Visegrad Fund and helps to build a cooperation between art institutions and art professionals in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.
Over a period of 3 months, the selected curators will cooperate with the Katarzyna Kozyra Foundation, MeetFactory, Easttopics and BJÖRNSONOVA. Together with the team of curators for each country, they will be asked to write articles and interview female artists with the aim to develop a research project of women active on the art scene of Visegrad countries, as well as to build a useful narrative for the Archive’s audiences.
DURATION OF THE COOPERATION: 15 October – 15 December 2020
Each selected candidate will get a cash grant of 1000 euro**.
