Exhibition, workshops and events by the Ukrainian collaborative duo Open Place

The exhibition Migration in Transition presents two volumes of research: Fresh Market Archive and a publication titled SOURCE. An archive is a kind of mélange – a mixing of various narratives and social compounds. Open Place has been collecting stories determined by the themes of emigration, violations of employee and human rights, patriarchal control over women, xenophobia, self-identification and identity, and other precarious conditions. The publication SOURCE is a collection of interviews of people and groups who are actively challenging the political status-quo regarding the status of marginalized people and other difficult political issues, and who have visions of proactive tactics on how to address them.

The works in Migration in Transition include materials gathered from Open Place’s international research as well as stories collected during their residence at Flux Factory.

Migration and challenges that arise because of migration, was the starting point of Open Place’s research. They began to understand migration as a process of transition, which is fundamental to so much of contemporary life. People migrate between identities, countries, languages, economic realities, genders, political beliefs, contexts. Migration in Transition is an attempt to build bridges through disparate experiences, and create a source of trust and solidarity. Migration in Transition is a collaborative environment and the place for reflection.

The goal of Migration in Transition is to record diverse experiences in one expansive text, and to create a political and social document collectively. This exhibition presents Open Place’s ongoing goal to bring together different perspectives into a universal message, offering strategies and tactics that we can all access.

The exhibition will be accompanied by workshops and discussion. Full schedule will coming soon.

In 1999 Yuriy Kruchak and Iuliia Kosterieva organized the artistic platform Open Place. It is directed to extension of creative research and to establishment of the links between art process and the different layers of modern society. Art is understood as a space of intersections of artistic social and political processes. The platform seeks to provide both the artist and the viewer with a specific form of equality and liberation. Open Place strive to extend the borders of influence of art, and to engage the new groups of people to creative process, through the interdisciplinary projects, as well as to establish a fruitful dialogue between society and those who creates art.
