2019 Diary U–jazdowski
This pocket and elegant publication combines the features of a calendar, planner, as well as notebook. In addition, it contains a collection of curatorial texts and an album with the works of international artists invited to artistic residencies at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art.
In this 2019 calendar, together, we ask about the normativity of the concept of hospitality and the host-guest relationship. How should hospitality standards be defined during times of migration, social divisions, climate change affecting the planet as well as the spread of populism and nationalism on it? Where (and how) can we find the value of hospitality? Are new meanings of this word possible in the current social and political context? Is another perspective feasible?
This publication is interactive yet personal as well as practical—allowing you to complete 2019 with your own plans, notes, drawings and lists of things to do in the company of engaged artists, curators as well as U–jazdowski guests.
