Filmoteka Muzeum

In the rented space of Łódź’s Cytryna movie theatre, the punk band Moskwa plays ‘for camera’ for Robakowski, who is also present on stage (he is the event’s only witness and addressee). The film is a unique recording of a rehearsal/live show, and at the same time a fulfillment of Robakowski’s artistic strategy, under which he explores issues such as art as a field of energy transmissions, of biological-mechanical processes – focusing on celebrating qualities poorly represented in the field of art, such as intensity, vitality.
