We are pleased to realise the first institutional solo exhibition with Karolina Breguła in Germany. She is a scholarship holder of the Stiftung Niedersachsen at the Edith-Russ-Haus 2023.

From the jury’s statement:

Karolina Breguła is a Polish artist working with film, photography, installation, and performative actions. The central topic of Bregula’s proposal, Flood, also emerged in several other applications: the climate crisis, and in particular rising sea levels that will cause housing and employment insecurity across the planet. Breguła’s elaboration on the issue is exciting and promising, as it explores the experiences of various communities and the research into various scientific disciplines, all while connecting the lived experiences and personal fears of inhabitants across different geographies. Many of her previous film projects—which demonstrate a rich filmic language and elaborated conceptual approaches—are co-created with their protagonists and participants, blurring the borders between professional and amateur artistic activity. For this new project, the artist plans to collaborate with scientists and the residents of coastal cities and villages in Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, and Taiwan. The film will tell the pressing story of communities facing severe climate disturbance to their lives and livelihoods, encompassing short films on the past, current, and future predicaments of particular places, as well as photography and local performances. A book, collaboratively written by Breluga and the participants, will accompany the film.
