Inspirations and Creative Methods: In Conversation: Paweł Althamer, Artur Żmijewski, Adam Mazur and Maria Anna Potocka. An event accompanying the exhibition The Ultimate Song
04.03.2021 at 6 pm
On Thursday 4 March at 6 pm we invite you to the event that accompanies the exhibition The Ultimate Song and the publication of the same title. With the participation of: Paweł Althamer, Artur Żmijewski, Adam Mazur and Maria Anna Potocka. During the session, the artists, curator and director of the Museum will discuss art, poetry, inspirations and creative methods. The event will be held in Polish.
The collages are made of excerpts cut out from books – starting with Taschen’s erotic and pornographic publications, through nature and anatomical albums, to historical and scientific atlases. The multi-layered, painterly works have a clear texture, colour and dense composition. War, the Shoah, suffering and erotica are some of the themes that appear in the exhibition, with no particular emphasis on any single one. Politics is conspicuously absent – the topic that the audiences have grown accustomed to while following the artists in their years of strife in the field of criticism. Nor are there exhortations to rise up or eulogies of the revolution. Instead, there is a reflection on poetry and art.
During the discussion you will be able to ask questions on Museum Facebook page.
The session will be simultaneously translated into Polish Sign Language (PJM). The event will take place online on PLAY KRAKOW. Entry 2 PLN, buy here >> The epidemiological situation permitting, it will also be possible to participate in the live event in the audiovisual hall at the Museum.
