Unwanted Heritage/Moderne Heimat Leipzig
[ Institution ]
Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej Łaźnia – Łaźnia Centre for Contemporary Art, GdańskAlthough Łaźnia Centre for Contemporary Art has existed only since 1998, it is the most noted exhibition venue of the Tricity, the urban area comprising the cities of Gdańsk, Gdynia, and Sopot. The centre is located in the building of the former public baths of the lower city – whence its name is derived. As yet, it has hosted several dozen exhibitions of current art from Poland and all over the world. In addition to its exhibitions, Łaźnia realises a range of supporting programmes such as “SPA: Spektakularne Prezentacje Artystyczne” (“Spectacular Artistic Presentations”), which consists of periodic presentations of the most interesting developments in contemporary culture – debuts of young artists, concerts, films, and talks, all of which accompany the main exhibitions.
