VIDEONALE - Elektronenströme

Fondation Zak - Branicka presents the book „POLISH!“ recently published on Contemporary Polish Art

Wednesday, May 25th, 7.00 p.m.

 

POLISH!

The increasing international attention to contemporary Polish art is not least because of the fact that the country has been going through political as well as cultural changes since the 1990s.
The contemporary art scene reflects the tensions that arise in a country between tradition and departure and opens up new and fascinating views. More and more contemporary artists from Poland are included in international museums and collections.
In response to the increasing interest the most promising 37 Polish artists who play an active part in the contemporary Polish art scene have been selected for the publication POLISH!
Every artist is represented by a text written by a leading curator or art critic, many pictures of the current and most important works as well as a short biography including the most important exhibitions and further key information.
Contributing authors are i.e. Ernst van Alphen, Charles Esche, Brigitte Huck, David Elliott, Daniel Marzona, Heike Munder und Christoph Tannert.
The represented artists range from Paweł Althamer, Cezary Bodziankowski, Katarzyna Kozyra, Robert Kuśmirowski and Dominik Lejman to Wilhelm Sasnal, Monika Sosnowska, Piotr Uklański and Hubert Czerepok.
The introduction was written by Anda Rottenberg, former director of the National Gallery of art in Warsaw.
