Publication date: 12.11.2019

What happens when people stare? An obsessive attention to an object has benefits and detractions. The obsessive gaze can be the basis of analysis or a weapon to use against diverse people—from the disabled, to the poor, to the sexually oppressed. This talk will focus on the fixed gaze in the arts as well as in life.

    Polish Theatrical and Social Set Design of the 20th and 21st Centuries

    Change the Setting. Polish Theatrical and Social Set Design of the 20th and 21st Centuries is the fourth review exhibition devoted to theatrical set design in the history of Zachęta. Its concept was born out of the original vision of Robert Rumas, a respected visual artist and set designer. The curator and his team of collaborators lead the viewers through 100 years of history, building the narrative of the exhibition according to an issue and theme-based layout and creating contextual references to earlier and later phenomena.
