The artspirators art group activity is the undertaking of various contemporary art projects.

We draw inspiration for our work from places of historical, social or similar importance.

 

  • We are particularly interested in sites that are inactive, abandoned, and possibly

  • forgotten by the general public despite their significance. Our aim, in addition to pure artistic expression is the promotion and activation of these sites.

  • Our method is divided into two phases:

  • Investigation and record of the history and substance of the site. This research has an 

  • artistic and human perspective and is not intended to replace or complete with formal

  • scientific research.

  •  

  • It is not only focusedon official records, but also encompasses testimonials and personal

  • narratives of people who live in the vicinity of the site.

  • Invitation of artists to create in situ projects. Artists are given full access to the results of

  • our research and encouraged to do their own.

  •  

Based on the material and possible thematic directions and restrictions, the artists create a site-specific work. More often than not, the work is implemented entirely or at least to a large extent in situ.

«Refuge Project II»
