The work [Masters] is a collection of five press articles from various influential Polish newspaper. Besides one from 1983, they are all from the 1990s and the beginning of this century. They present, in the form of interviews or critical essays, the figures of several most important artists of the 1970s Polish neoavangart-garde. Most important not only according to me, although these are in fact my masters. Taken together, these texts form a narrative about that time, about the people and their problems, as well as about the art itself, its achievements and its impact on reality. The catch is that these articles were never published and their protagonists remain unfamiliar to, and unappreciated by, the wide public.
