CentrumCentrum is an art institution located in Szczecin, Poland. Its research and exhibition program is focused on the relation between the former periphery and the former centres of the world, in the context ofeconomical and culture dependency. CentrumCentrum is seeking threads from the past, and tries to weave them in the present net of relations, taking into account also non-human characters - forgotten events, hidden objects - and boosting its presence in the contemporary narration. CentrumCentrum makes publications, builds collection of objects and situations, initiates the discussions, runs workshops, translates, recycles, reconstructs, takes care of the soil, plants vegetables and collects fruits. CentrumCentrum was created in 2014 by a visual artist Łukasz Jastrubczak and filmmaker Małgorzata Mazur. Both are currently working as tutors at the Academy of Arts in Szczecin.
