The international competition for artists organised by the OKNOPLAST Group and MOCAK was launched! The winners will receive a grand prize of EUR 8,000 and two distinction prizes of EUR 2,000. The winning works will also be presented in an exhibition at MOCAK.
The exhibition shows several dozen drawings and prints by Bruno Schulz. We have also prepared an experiment with self-portraits. We have cut out representations of the artist’s face from larger compositions and arranged them in a sequence analysing his psyche.
Janina Turek was born in Krakow in 1921 and died there in 2000. Yet for 57 years – in secret from her loved ones – she kept a diary. The object of her observations was everyday life. The core of the exhibition will be a presentation of her notebooks from the MOCAK Collection.
In the past, art served the purpose of bolstering political power –today it is a tool for questioning and holding authority to account. Once, artists used their talent to support the political system of the day. Today, they have become perspicacious and critical observers of the political scene and are active participants in opposition.
The show presents photographs by Maks Levin, taken from 2014 to 2022. The earliest works cover events that took place on Independence Square (Maidan) in Kiev. he most recent photographs report on beginning of Russian invasion on Ukraine (February and March 2022).
Works in which the relationship with the surroundings they are in plays a significant role and provides a semantic clinch are usually called installations. Artists employ the exhibition space available or design it themselves.
The artist called his works Concept-Shapes. He sometimes invested works and punctuation marks with a spatial form, combining an intellectual experience with that of the senses, thus revealing the diffusion of the two.
