Zachęta Online Magazine
#31: On disability...
On disability in the social, artistic and cultural context.
#30: On language and sensitivity
The 30th issue of the magazine was inspired by the summer project Plac Małachowskiego, which touches upon the issue of language and sensitivity to exclusion and diversity.
#29: Zimna rewolucja
We invite you to read the this issue, themed on socialist realism, which is recalled now in an international context thanks to the exhibition Cold Revolution.
#28: Education and Ecology
In the 28th issue of our online magazine, we remain in the sphere of education, albeit seen from a more environmentalist-cum-activist angle.
The theme of the 27th issue of the Zachęta Online Magazine is education – or rather, what effects remain with our audience after our educational programme.
#26: SEFA, Zachęta and the collection
In the 26th issue of the Zachęta Online Magazine, we invite you to read an interview with the author of the three-volume study Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts in Warsaw (1860–1940, 1948).
The subject of the 25th issue of the Zachęta Online Magazine is a portrait and a self-portrait. To begin with, we recall the exhibition of Israeli artists Tama Ben-Tor and Miki Carmi.
#24: Sculpture in Search of a Place
In No. 24 of the Magzine we return to the subject of sculpture. And we start with an essay by Zbigniew Libera, where the artist talks about the history of Polish sculpture from a personal perspective.
The 23rd edition of our online magazine has been inspired by Joanna Rajkowska’s exhibition at the Zachęta. We recommend reading the two texts accompanying the event.
#22: The city of roots
No. 22 of our online magazine brings materials – textual, visual and audiovisual – related to the exhibition Rhizopolis.
The 21st issue digs into our film collection. The selected films speak volumes about the artists’ fascination with cinema and film genres, such as mock-document, horror, and animation.
#20: Bitter sweet
We invite you to read the 20th issue of the Magazine. As the strange year 2020 comes to an end, we decided to say goodbye to it with a bittersweet edition, where beauty and tenderness are unsettling.
#19: Zachęta then & now
The 19th issue of our online magazine tells the story of Zachęta – both historical and contemporary – as seen through the prism of the people who have created this place.
In the 18th issue of the magazine, we pull form our archives materials about sculptors and sculpture.
#17: Women power
In the 17th issue of the magazine, through our archives we talk about women: rebels, social activists, provocateurs and anarchists.
#16: The Cage and the Toy
Mira Marcinów writes about a series of photos by Joanna Piotrowska documenting animal cages and enclosures. Her essay opens the 6th issue of the Magazine, devoted not only to animal themes.
Joanna Piotrowska is a visual artist and photographer living and working in London. Read the 15th issue of the Zachęta Online Magazine, which opens with an interview with the artist.
#14: Art Collecting
In the fourteenth issue, we revisit the subject of collecting, although this time not only with an eye on our collection. We were prompted by the major renovation of the Zachęta’s art storerooms.
#13: Bending the Structure
We invite you to read the 13th issue of the Magazine, including the text by Gabriela Świtek, around Monika Sosnowska's exhibition at Zachęta, and a recording of a meeting with the artist from 2012.
#12: Monika Sosnowska
The 12th edition of the Zachęta Online Magazine, which is devoted primarily to Monika Sosnowska’s art, opens with Maria Brewińska’s essay Reality with errors.
#11: Małachowski Square
Magdalena Komornicka’s text opens the11th edition of the Zachęta Online Magazine. Discover the history behind 3 Małachowski Square!
#10: Silence and scream
Can whisper and calmness be as effective as shouting and rebellion? These are the questions that we are trying to answer in the tenth issue the Zachęta Online Magazine.
In the ninth issue of the Zachęta Online Magazine we recall, among others, the exhibition Alienations or The Fire Next Time.
While you are at home, we recommend the latest issue of the Zachęta On-line Magazine dedicated to our collection and collecting.
We devote the latest edition of the Zachęta Magazine to architecture – not only at the Polish Pavilion in Venice, but also at the Zachęta.
#6: Play is a necessary part of existence
In the sixth issue of our Magazine we’ve decided to review various themes related to children – both in the artistic and exhibition domains.
You can read about John Lurie’s journey from creating music to painting in the interview that the curators conducted with him, which opens the latest edition of our on-line magazine.
In the fourth issue of our Magazine, built around the theme of “time”, we revisit Rafał Bujnowski’s individual exhibition in 2016, titled 2066.
An interview with Anna Ermolaeva, a Russian dissident living in Vienna since 1989, became the starting point for the third issue of the Zachęta Magazine devoted to various forms of travel.
The starting point for the second issue of Zachęta Online Magazine is a conversation with Zbigniew Warpechowski – the precursor of performance art in Poland, author of installations, painter, poet, and philosopher.
Zachęta On-line Magazine, whose premiere issue we are just launching will feature regular presentations of our resources – texts, exhibitions, works form our collection, documentary materials, and publications.
