Studio of Spatial Activities

Shape the space around you knowing that It will repay you.

The Studio of Spatial Activities was created at the Faculty of Multimedia Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań. It was set up as part of a transformation of the Studio of Sculpture Transplantation of the Faculty of Artistic Education, which was formed from the Studio of Open Sculpture, which was started in 2003 by Miroslaw Balka. Since its conception the studio has been co-led by: Ewa Bone (2003-2004), Katarzyna Krakowiak (2004-2007), Karolina Kubik (2010-2013), Anna Jochymek (2013-2015), Zuza Golińska (2015-2018), Anna Shimomura (2018/2019) and Tymek Bryndal (2018-2020).

Since 2011 the studio operates from the Faculty of Media Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.

The main aim of the Studio of Spacial Activities is to make an attempt to recognize and creatively shape the spaces in which we move and act. For its activities, the studio moves beyond the Academy grounds, paying attention to social and political problems that exist in the world around us. Students explore their cultural sensitivity, while looking for an artistic identity. By defining their place and exchanging their views with representatives of other places, students draw their own spheres of communication.

Program:

Voluntary subordination, focus on help.

Authenticity in the conformity of deeds and words.

Conciliatory relationships through consideration of everyone, equal treatment, tolerance and cooperation.

Responsible morality in reference to one's own values, justified and thoughtful actions.

Transcendent spirituality in treating one's activities as a mission that constitutes a coherent unity of professional and private life.

Impact changing others, being a mentor, a visionary and believing in people, giving them strength.

Like others, to consider oneself as the same as the people we are among, unexpectedly applauding.
