Acziun Susch › Archive of Events › 2022 › UNPOLISHED


event in collaboration with Muzeum Susch! A 4 days of performances by female choreographers discussing feminism and problematics of aging in the contemporary art field.

UNPOLISHED was established in 2016 as a performance festival created by a group of Berlin-based-Polish-origin artists. It first went international (2017) and then planned also to go off limits (2020) but instead of such a leap, it hung in the air frozen as the whole world stopped. Since then, the festival has been on pause

After the forced break, with this edition of UNPOLISHED that was conceived in dialogue of Joanna Leśnierowska and Peter Pleyer, propose another opening of perspective. Erase national, also from the inter-national calling for inter – or even trans-locality. To not make Polish the only reference point of UNPOLISHED rather, let’s bring closer several Eastern Europe localities and look beyond them into what unites us in a shared experience and what have been and still are the strategies applied to deal with differences.
