“Forms of Survival” were inspired by the numerous e-mails the artist receives from various institutions, festivals and biennials about exhibitions canceled due to the pandemic. Filming took place during Flow – znaczy przepływ and the residence at the Arsenał Gallery in Białystok.
The work was created as part of the “mikrozamówienia” series carried out by Jasna 10: Warszawska Świetlica Krytyki Politycznej as part of the "Centrum Jasna" program financed by the City of Warsaw.
