    Gordon Parks: I Use My Camera as a Weapon

    The title of the exhibition I Use My Camera as a Weapon is a quotation from Parks’ first and most important published writing, A Choice of Weapons. That title is the key to his life philosophy and it has to do with choosing your tools precisely in order to reach your goals.  It also refers to a form of activism and the struggle for social equality.

    Ponovo upotrebiti: past as costume or inspiration

    Works presented in the exhibition re-use artifacts from recent history (architecture, photography, media images documenting political and social events, film, music). Some authors treat them as a stage on which they develop completely new ideas, the others refer more to the stories, that inspired them.

    LIfe. A Manual
    Exhibition inspired by the work of Georges Perec

    Exhibition Life. A Manual — integrating various disciplines — presents the works by authors who think in classifications, enjoy formal constraints and complex narratives. The exposition is divided into four parts: ludic, sociological, novelist and autobiographical. The reading room, which is an integral part of the show, permeates all the ‘chapters’ of the exhibition.

    Notes from the Expanse

    Jerzy Jarnuszkiewicz. Notes from the Expanse is a monographic exhibition presenting the artist’s sculptural works, a large selection of medals and graphics, and a part of his oeuvre virtually unknown to the Polish audience: a collection of polychromed metal sculptures created on a residency in Canada. But the show’s purpose is not only to present the achievements of an outstanding sculptor, but also to highlight the versatility and magnitude of his talent.
