The urban space in Łódź as an archive. Material traces of Construction in Process
At the end of October and at the beginning of November 1981 (26.10 – 15.11.1981) Łódź hosted the first Construction in Process. Although it was held outside the official structures and institutional art circulation, it became an important event and an independent artistic undertaking on the international scale. Łódź was then visited by eminent artists bound with the avant-garde artistic trends of those days like Sol LeWitt, Richard Serra, Richard Nonas, Dennis Oppenheim or David Rabinowitch. Artistic interventions and activities frequently took place outside the buildings. Traits that have remained enrich public space and, at the same time, testify to the events from the past. Therefore, Łódź can be perceived as a sort of an archive of pieces of art and cultural artefacts in public space. The “archival collection” is made up of works created during the following Łódź editions of Construction in Process.
