Paintings from the MOCAK Collection at the AGH University of Science and Technology

Paintings from the MOCAK Collection at the AGH University of Science and Technology

from 06.02.2023

MOCAK has prepared a selection of over a dozen paintings from the Collection, which have been reproduced as prints on canvas. Thanks to this procedure, viewers can experience the paintings in a way similar to that of looking at the originals. Each painting has a description in Polish and English, which contains its interpretation and contextualises it in relation to the body of work of respective artists.

In our selection, we have taken into account the specific circumstances of the exhibition. The selected works are intended for young and ambitious people facing a professional challenge. The tests that await them require strength, concentration, critical thinking, and determination. Crossing paths with art has a marked impact on the need to define oneself. The goal of the paintings on display is to direct the viewers to art – but also to emphasise the importance of a critical and ideologically independent attitude. From its inception, the MOCAK programme has been based on the premise that art is an important tool in life and that its role is to serve society.

Showing the works of art within the space of a higher education institution, we particularly want to focus on the following message: don’t be afraid to think.
