Drawing on her experiences collaborating with Althamer in Warsaw, Janevski will discuss the artist’s sculptures, with particular focus on Guma (2008). Guma, created in collaboration with a group of local children and caregivers from the North Praga Pedagogy and Social Animation Group from Warsaw, is one of a number of Althamer’s sculptures that celebrates individuals on the margins on society and was originally installed outside a neighborhood bar. If you can’t make it, we will be live-tweeting the talk for the whole hour!
