Presentation of PSWAR (Public Space With A Roof) Projects @ Silk Museum

After the presentation film screening "Artists in the Big Top"
by Alexander Kluge, 1968.

Special thanks to Goethe Institute in Georgia for distributing the film.

‘Public Space With A Roof’ (PSWAR) was founded in 2003. It was initiated as a research project-space with the aim to enable artists to develop and present their ideas, realize collaborative projects and engage in a critical discourse. From 2006, PSWAR has been represented by Tamuna Chabashvili, Adi Hollander and Vesna Madzoski. After graduating from the Department of Sculpture at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, two members of the PSWAR group felt the urge to find a format in which they would openly discuss various questions and ideas - mainly concerning the possible redefinition of public art and the possibilities of sharing the working process with the public. In that way, PSWAR has become a specific extension of the artistic practice and the open studio. PSWAR considers its practice to be on the border with many disciplines (curating, critical theory, social engagement, etc.) and uses exhibition making as a medium in art.
