The Marian Eile exhibition is part of the series presenting artists from Krakow, whose media encompassed both image and words. The goal of the series is to refresh our memory of artists – somewhat forgotten – whose personalities had an impact on the cultural life of the city.

Vicious Circles of Madness

At the exhibition we present three installations: Ian Ross Baughman’s Multi-Equation Case Model, Revitalisation of Jacek Malczewski’s ‘Vicious Circle’ (MOCAK Collection) and Le danse macabre de terrorisme. The most important element in the works of Marcin Berdyszak is the human figure, contextualised by means of clothing, positioning, props and surroundings.
