The group exhibition is a representation of more than a hundred authors representing the dynamics of Silesia in the Czech Republic and Upper Silesia in Poland in the field of contemporary art. The exhibition will be held simultaneously on the Czech (Michal Coalmine in Ostrava, GAFU Gallery, Jáma 10 Gallery, Saigon Gallery) and the Polish side (Wydział Artystyczny Uniwersytetu Śląskiego w Cieszynie from 6. 11. 2019).

The curatorial concept of the Situation Silesia 2019 exhibition is based on the premises that the geographic area of Upper Silesia on the Polish side and Silesia on the Czech side is a culturally homogenous unit of which history was radically affected by the expansion of heavy industry, coal mining and the phenomena related to the dynamics of socio-cultural transfers. However, in both republics these transfers have been viewed murkily as a life “somewhere at the end of the world”.

Artwork of more than hundred authors will be presented to the public on the Czech and Polish side. Such art show has never been presented before. Not only authors who significantly influenced events in the Silesian art scene in the early 1990s, but also the authors who have shaped the artistic expression in the following decades, and also outstanding art talents on the art scene will be presented at the exhibition. The important factor shaping the high quality level of art life on both sides of the Silesian border was the foundation of faculties of art. Therefore, it is logical that these very institutions initiated the Silesia Situation 2019 exhibition, following the OVA 95-05 and the Situation of Ostrava 2017.
