Although the institutions make their social media accounts accessible to artists, such cooperations often come down to presenting artworks. Meanwhile, Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź initiates using Instagram as a digital laboratory. The project Save as Draft will become a new form of artist-in-residence programs.

Instagram is one of the most important platforms dedicated to visual culture. Therefore, cultural institutions and galleries most often use it to publish information about upcoming events and to bring the digitized collections closer to the audience. On the other hand, artists treat Instagram not only as an online portfolio, but also as a tool for creating art. The platform has become yet another medium used for the presentation and implementation of their creative practices.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, you can observe more and more online projects - taken by both artists and cultural institutions. The inability to organize exhibitions and the emerging crisis are an "incentive" to transfer activities to Internet, to minimize the means of production.

The aim of Safe as Draft is to use artworks from the museum’s collections within Instagram. The project is based on the idea of ​​"prototypes". Invited creators will work with the unique "database", which are resources of Muzeum Sztuki, using the tools available on the platform, such as posts, tags, lives, augmented reality (AR) filters, gifs and videos. Artists will treat the digitized museum collections as the titular "drafts" of their practices.
