Franciszek Orłowski: This Blood Is for You

The project This Blood Is for You was initiated by Franciszek Orłowski in 2016. At that time, the artist invited Warsaw residents from different cultural backgrounds to donate blood. The collected blood went to the Polish blood bank. The action was documented. The portraits of donors bear captions with their names and the countries they came from. Two years later the artist carried out a similar project as part of a festival organised by the Konstmuseum in Uppsala. The exhibition at MOCAK shows the third, Krakow-based and expanded version of this project.

Besides the documentation of the project, the exhibition catalogue also comprises essays, including Migration, Law, and the Image: Beyond the Veil of Ignorance by W.J.T. Mitchell.
