Gzregorz Klaman (Poland)

Flag for Democracy, 2005 workshop (P.zza Castello, Formigine)
The artist teaches at the Danzica Academy of Fine Arts and is the founder of the cultural centre The Wyspa Progress Foundation, in the shipyards of the city. For some time now, he has been examining national phobias: hymns, flags, emblems etc… He has therefore created a series of altered flags: a flag may be honoured and defended as well as being a basis for discussion, exchange and the redefinition of symbols. With this is mind, the artist will hold a workshop on the theme of multiple identities and the symbols of the “New Europe” together with young artists and students from Formigine. The works produced will be on display throughout the course of the event.
