Artistic field:




he Open Call for Workshop projects proposal for SESAM 2020 Poliklinika is now open. 

The Event

The event will bring together student and graduate urbanists, architects, artists and creatives in a series of workshops investigating inspired by the urban condition of Slavutych in Ukraine.

The concept for SESAM 2020 POLIKLINIKA, is focusing on healthcare, and its relation to architecture at the physical, methodological, and metaphorical levels. The theme aims to question the methods used in architectural practice to diagnose and prognose a ‘problem’. We propose three anatomic planes through which healthcare -maintenance or improvement of health-, can be addressed during Poliklinika through workshops and other discursive exchanges: prophylaxis, diagnosis and therapy.


Please find attached our Tutor Information Pack with more details about participation terms, conditions, locations and the local context. The file is publicly available for download here:


Anyone studying or working in the field of architecture, or any other area of expertise closely related to spatial practices, anywhere in the World, can apply


The event will take place in Slavutych (Ukraine), a city built in only 6 months to relocate population after the Chernobyl disaster. The workshops will take place in the central Polyclinic currently in disuse.


SESAM 2020 Poliklinika, which will take place between 28th May and 7th June 2020

Open Call for U.S. Based Artists Vol. 2.2





IZOLYATSIA with support from the US Embassy in Ukraine is pleased to announce an Open Call for the American-based artists. The second call comes from the success of the first year of cooperation, in the result of which 5 US artists came to Ukraine in 2017-2018. Among them, there were a choreographer, dancer and director Meryl Murman, artist Asad Raza, curator and artist Clemens Poole, designer and urbanist Sam Holleran, artist Domingo Castillo.

Considering the institutional specifics of IZOLYATSIA and the general social and political context in Ukraine, the Open Call vol. 2 is interested in socially and politically engaged art practices, activism, urbanism, public art and community-based art.

The preference goes to the artists who employ different media to investigate post-industrial regeneration, creative economy, complex social and political matters of migration and displacement, performative or participatory practices engaging with local communities, performance practice, interdisciplinary research (Social Sciences, Biology, Music, Robotic Science, Gender Studies combined with art).

As a research-based residency, Open Call vol. 2 is focused on the accumulation of information, communication with local artists and communities, and immersion into the Ukrainian cultural, social and political contexts.
