CONSTRUCTION IN PROCESS 1981
THE COMMUNITY THAT CAME?

Construction in Process organized in the fall of 1981 was the feast of art and freedom. It was the co-operation of various milieus, which resulted in the invitation send out to fifty four artists from all over the world to establish, with inhabitants of Łódź, the community of creative activity. Artists who created their pieces at that time donated them to the Polish society, represented by the Independent Trade Union Solidarność Board of the Łódź Region. In 2005 the Union presented them to the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź. In May this year, together with artists, organizers of Construction in Process as well as researchers, we shall try to give answers to the question brought about by this unique event ? whether and how art can re-organize a socio-political community.
