Finissage of Everyday Forms of Resistance exhibition

Workshops, guided tours, meetings and Palestinian Films Review

This is the last week of the Everyday Forms of Resistance exhibition, which focuses on the various ways of dealing with conflict, ecological disasters, and xenophobia by using everyday practices of care, tenderness, and attentiveness. Palestine – now under occupation for over 70 years – serves as a metaphor for a space facing multiple challenges of the contemporary world.

The exhibition was prepared by a group of artists from Poland, Palestine and Belgium, most of whom developed their ideas during artistic residencies and in collaboration with the curator, Ika Sienkiewicz-Nowacka. Over the past few months, Everyday Forms of Resistance has been a space for dialogue, learning and unlearning for the multi-generational audience of the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art.

  • In the final week of the exhibition, we invite you to participate in a programme of workshops, guided tours of the exhibition, meetings, and film screenings. Many of our guests, including the authors of the exhibition, travelled from Palestine in order to celebrate a moment of solidarity and coexistence – crucial for this project – together with the Warsaw audience.
