Ewa Partum in Contexts – 7th International Festival of Ephemeral Art

Contexts 2017 – 7th International Festival of Ephemeral Art in Sokołowsko
July 21 – 25, 2017
Organized by IN SITU Contemporary Art Foundation


For the 7th Edition of Sokołowsko International Festival of Ephemeral Art (Poland), internationally recognised artists, performers, filmmakers and musicians were asked to express their take on the enigmatic phrase “That’s the way”. Among them were Ewa Partum, a pioneer of conceptual art, whose installation paid tribute to Polish women through an installation that carried a phrase freely translated as: “You get us freedom of decision / We will take over your authority”.

Sokolowsko is a small town in Lower Silesia, 15 km from Wałbrzych. It was re-discovered by IN SITU Foundation, and soon became a popular destination for artists from all corners of the world. Sokołowsko Laboratory of Culture is dedicated to promote contemporary art, film and experimental music through festivals, exhibitions, screenings, conferences and meetings centered around art and culture.
