“Equality, one of the most fundamental democratic principles, is the theme of Rohkunstbau XIV. In this, the second part of the trilogy Three Colours: Blue, White, Red, ten visual and a large number of performing artists will create at Sacrow Palace site-specific works of art addressing this challenging and timely topic. Following Krzysztof Kieslowski’s famous film trilogy of the same name (1993-94), Rohkunstbau XIV will shift attention to the perspective of the individual. Indeed, very different stories about equality will be told in the new works and productions by the participating artists, each of whom will be taking a very personal approach to the subject.” (PR Rohkunstbau, pdf).
