On October 2019 students from Szczecin Art Academy (PL), Faculty of Fine Arts at Brno University of Technology (CZ) and Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava (SK) met in Banska Stiavnica in Slovakia – in a city known for its gold mines. They had spent a week together, and tried to create something collaboratively. The failures and achievements of the process were presented to the public at Banska Stanica artist run space and later on November exhibited in Szczecin – as part of Młode Wilki 19 Festival. The presentation of the project was also held on January 2020 at TIC Gallery in Brno.
The aim of the project was to strenghten the connection between young artists in the region and to learn and test the collaborative strategies of art production.
In frames of “AntiGoldRush” students took part in sound workshops, realized a short film “Kudlibabky”, went to pick up mushrooms, played performative games or recalled art groups, utopian art communities, grass root bands, artists’ unions and coalitions, that were created in opposition or alternatively to the art-market or art institutional structures.
