Words matter. Words reflect our world but also shape it. Language includes some and excludes others. BOZAR takes part in Smashing Wor(l)ds: Cultural Practices for re/Imagining & un/Learning Vocabularies, an ambitious European project that explores vocabularies, languages, and narratives of resistance in order to build new forms of expressions.

The project will address the forms of communication and practices of European cultural institutions, to work towards the inclusion of diverse life practices, stories, and voices and to oppose cultural and social marginalization.

Within the framework of the project, one of our partners, the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, organises two month-long residencies (either in Warsaw or online) for artists, researchers, curators, educators and activists from all over the world. Focusing on the study of verbal and visual dictionaries of cultural institutions, the residencies will be devoted to research, practice and action on how to disarm violent mental, linguistic, and communicative constructions in the field of art, or to create alternative ones.

The application deadline is September 28, 2020. Extensive information about the residencies and how to apply can be found here.

This project is supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
