Thursdays with the Collection Online. Julius von Bismarck | #MOCAKonline!

The current project Thursdays with the Collection, in which every Thursday selected video works from the MOCAK Collection are shown in the audiovisual hall, continues as online showcase as part of the #MOCAKonline action.

In November, as part of the project Thursday with the Collection Online, we present the work of Julius von Bismarck Landscape Painting (Forest).

The artist conducted a social experiment. He hired local people to paint a fragment of the forest white and then ordered the participants to restore the original colours to nature based on their own memory. The whole action was recorded on film. From a distance the landscape looks natural, but the shots of details reveal a layer of paint covering stones, trees and grass. In his works Julius von Bismarck examines the credibility of our remembered image of the world around us that we see every day.

This edition of Thursdays with the Collection accompanies the exhibition of students from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, entitled Anthropocene, which will be open until 14 March 2021. 

Julius von Bismarck (1983, Germany)

Installation, object, video, performance, photography. A multimedia artist, he focuses on the issues of perception and experience, exploring our physical and social limitations. In his works he combines interest in new technologies and science. His latest works turn to the natural environment. Julius von Bismarck uses nature as a backdrop for his happening or he intervenes in it directly.

The screenings will take place every Thursday on Museums YouTube channel from 8 pm. to 8:40 pm. The movie is 19 minutes long (it will be looped two times). You can also see the video on MOCAK Instagram TV @mocak_krakow on the same days from 7 pm.
