    Since 2014, POLIN Museum has conducted an artist-in-residence program, inviting Polish and foreign artists for three-week residencies. During their stays, artists use the subject of Jewish heritage as the basis of a project conducted in cooperation with the Museum, involving the inhabitants of Warsaw in their works.

    In spring 2016, an exhibition Presence/Absence/Traces. Contemporary Artists on Jewish Warsaw of the works created during the first edition of the program (13 artistic residencies) was displayed at POLIN Museum. The artists addressed the subjects of Jewish identity and related autobiographical stories, spoke about remembrance of the Shoah and its traces in the tissue of Warsaw, and also re-interpreted the Polish-Jewish cultural legacy.

    With the second edition of the program (2016-2017), we wish to continue the previous strategy of working with the history of Polish Jews. We are interested in a critical analysis of contemporary public debate, social memory, Jewish cultural inheritance, public knowledge and imagination. But also transnational remembrance practices and alternative policies of history.
