Over the past ten years, Sharon Lockhart has produced an interconnected series of films and photographic works through her collaboration with a community of young women in Poland. Published in conjunction with her exhibition at the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, this book closely studies two significant components of Lockhart’s work across Poland—the film Rudzienko (2016), which Lockhart created over three years, as well as the workshops Lockhart conducted with the young women. These workshops, aimed at empowering their senses of agency, freedom, and creativity, were fundamental to the making of Rudzienko, and more broadly, to Lockhart’s ongoing engagement with them. For the first time, this publication provides in-depth views of the methodologies and frameworks of the workshops that Lockhart and her collaborators organized, as well as a visual archive of the workshops and related research material.
