Operations on Places is an exhibition presenting selected works carried out in the public space of Lublin. Urban space, the main theme of the exhibition, becomes a peculiar case-study of the modern city-palimpsest based on mapping, rewriting and overwriting of meanings, building and demolishing, interpersonal interactions, world-view exchange and economic exchange. Artists, whose works will be presented at the exhibition, work in the living tissue of the city, analyse it, form it, and contextualise it. The starting point for the works is ‘MapL’ video by Mirosław Bałka, which in an abstract way presents the map of Lublin from Majdanek concentration camp. All other works are part of this city plan, highlighting the artists’ intervention points on it. The exhibition was firstly presented at the Petach Tikva Mueseum of Art (Israel).
