Polish Expats Association (PEA) has moved to a new space called Centrala at Minerva Works. To celebrate, they will be holding a weekend-long screening of artists’ videos, originally showed at the Points of View Video Festival in Łódź, Poland.
The Festival is a platform for the presentation of current video works made by students and recent graduates from fine art academies in Poland, as well as artists from Łódź’s partner cities: Vilnius and Berlin. The Birmingham presentation comprises a selection of videos shown in Łódź between 2011 and 2013, and a selection from Vilnius and Berlin.
