In choosing World War II we had no ambition to present its history but rather to focus on some threads that have had the greatest impact on the Polish consciousness. In the exhibition we present 39 artists.
The exhibition is the latest in a series of individual presentations by artists whose works are featured in the MOCAK Collection. We are showing 17 works from the years 2014–2019. Seven of them were created especially for the display in Krakow.
The exhibition aims to bring the figure of the one of most prominent Polish artists closer to the audiences. This year we commemorate the tenth anniversary of Smoczyński’s death. Private Exhibition comprises the black-and-white photographs taken in the artist’s studio in Lublin.
The year 2019 is the year of the 80th anniversary of the poet’s birthday and also the 10th anniversary of his death. In commemoration, the Museum is presenting an individual exhibition of the artist, which comprises entirely works from the MOCAK Collection.
At the exhibition, we show selected objects and installations, in which motion plays a particular role. In all these works it functions as the device for instilling meaning and bringing coherence to the message. In this manner, motion has almost become an object.
Exhibition presents works by the artists who employs the relationship between imagination and function in quite a contrary way. With some exceptions, they completely reject the practical function, instead dwelling on its symbolism.
In collaboration with the Helena Modrzejewska National Stary Theatre in Krakow, the Museum organised display of Krystian
Lupa’s installation Live Factory 2 – an adaptation of the stage design for his theatre production Factory 2.
