  ArtGuide 2015. Close Stranger: Gdańsk — Kaliningrad — Klaipėda

ElenaTsvetaeva, AgnieszkaWołodźko, IgnasKazakevičius (Eds.) (2015) Kaliningrad: Baltic Branch of the National Centre for Contemporary Arts. ISBN 978-5-94620-100-1. – 176 p.

In 2013, in the frame of the “Close Stranger”, contemporary artists and arts professionals from Lithuania, Poland and Russia went on an art expedition along the South-Eastern coast of the Baltic Sea. It included visits to historical and cultural sites important for the regional identity. As a result of the trip, artists, curators, writers, journalists, social researchers and art critics prepared a unique art-guide “Close Stranger: Gdańsk — Kaliningrad — Klaipėda”, which presents different views on what unites the three cities in one region. The art-guide is devised as a book for reading with stories of common and individual plots.
