Crime in Art
A Polish-English publication developing the themes of the works presented in the exhibition analyses the most significant issues that transpire from the relationship between crime and art. As well as the theoretical texts by Noël Carroll, Brunon Hołyst, Bogusław Habrat, Colin Wilson and Maria Anna Potocka, the catalogue will also have a richly illustrated part devoted to the artists and the works presented in the exhibition.
The Crime in Art exhibition is a part of MOCAK’s series which combines art with the most significant civilisational themes such as history, sport, science and religion. The series aims to present seemingly unequivocal concepts through a variety of artistic interpretations. Another aim is to demonstrate how many creative inspirations and how much symbolic potential there lurks in the everyday reality.
