Warsaw 2011: Wasteland
In its first year the Warsaw Summer School explored the theme of ‘Urban Wastelands’. The first week was devoted to individual projects and in the second week we collaborated with the students to create a large, outdoor installation. The installation was a temporary exhibition space, transforming a chosen ‘urban wasteland’ which consisted of a multi faceted exhibition space above which a giant canopy made of found plastic bags was suspended. At the opening of the Urban Wasteland exhibition, all the work from the first weeks individual projects was presented and images of the construction of the installation were projected onto the side of building.
