Marita Bullmann: "My works are engagements with everyday objects: familiar materials, actions, spaces and places. I am seeking a direct encounter between body and space. My working method can be understood as a temporally ephemeral, site- and situation-specific process."email website Instagram some work
Co- founder of KIPISZ- personal improvisation space.
It persistently drifts away in her dreams. She moves endlessly and falls silent in stillness. She wraps old things with sentiment, empathises with people around her, doesn't understand the world.email website Instagram some work

Gadu Gadu is an artistic game from Maschinenhaus Essen Germany in cooperation with the Offspace KIPISZ Łódź Poland.
See artists from Poland and Germany perform in their very own language. Eight artists face each other and ask questions about their artistic work and answer in their own art form.
I deal with many forms of art. I treat creativity as an element woven into my life. I don't think I'm creating artworks as external artifacts. At least I don't focus on that. I like improvisation, an event, a fleeting impression, a flash of an eye, an escaping thought that I try to capture in some expression. Music is closest to my heart. I also deal with photography and short films. I studied philosophy in Łódź until 2012. I stayed in this city and started to deal with culture animation - I organize a festival in Łódź and a series of concerts under the name Musica Privata - it mainly presents improvised music and contemporary composed music. As a musician, I collaborated with many improvisers, I learned a different approach from each of them and tried to respond in my own way.email website some work
