Young Polish art

Together, the Zacheta National Gallery, Warsaw, the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, and the Polish Institute in Berlin are presenting young Polish art in the exhibition Common Affairs.

Since 2003, the prestigious Views prize for young Polish art has been awarded in the Zacheta Gallery every other year. The award is accompanied by an exhibition in the prominent Zacheta Gallery, which helps to garner more international attention for the contemporary Polish art scene.

Common Affairs presents a selection of current positions by artists who have won or were nominated for the Views Award in the past 15 years. The retrospective, which takes place in Berlin, intends to update the artistic practices of recent history. While this updating process accentuates the interesting phenomena and urgent problems that the artists have engaged with, it simultaneously examines the shifts and changes in the cultural landscape of Poland and abroad. Particular focus is placed on positions that address the history and politics of memory and representation, transformation and imminent transition.

Featured artists (selection): Tymek Borowski, Karolina Bregula, Rafal Jakubowicz, Robert Kusmirowski, Anna Molska, Karol Radziszewski, Janek Simon

Exhibition: Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, Polish Institute, Berlin 21.7.-30.10.2016
