Filmoteka Muzeum

Agnieszka Polska’s animated films rely on illustrations and photographs found in the pre-war press and publications on the art of the 1960s. The artist sets the archival material in motion, performing subtle colour-related interventions, and presents them in an entirely new context, manifesting the “afterlife” of the seemingly dated archives.

In Correction Exercises, the artist made use of photographs found in old books on medicine. The aesthetic appeal of these photographs – low resolution and slight blurriness – makes the film appear as an old documentary.
