General aim of the project:

Referring to Alternativa Festival 2013 ‚Till tomorrow!’, which aimed to investigate the ways in which contemporary art intersects with the political, Lendlabor  (Lisa Enzenhofer, Anna Resch) was searching for performative ways to develop new approaches towards the conflicting interests in the Gdansk shipyard former premise stakeholders.
The main issue in the project was to develop different tactics and create new practices of everyday life in a place so strongly connected to the history of Gdansk, Poland and Europe.
As a result of an intensive research during their artist in residence time from 22nd of July to 16th of August 2013, they developed several ideas to rethink the current situation of the stakeholders, the city hall and local community in the shipyard towards a more prospective vision. The strategy to start the project not by drawing ideas, but to activate the public space and interview people shows a different perspective on the role of urban designers and architects towards the curatorial, activating role.
The project „OPEN GARDEN – investigative practices of everyday life“  is planned to be the first project in the shipyard followed by another intensive research as well as the documentation and scenarios for the area.
The projects does not only change the perception of the shipyard visually, but also creates a new meeting point and provokes a different level of discussion. These facts could help to find a new way of cooperation between all initiatives that fight for keeping the shipyard in terms of the collective memory of Gdansk as well as to develop one strong vision for the future.
