Guided tour in English through the "Neighbours" exhibition
Oliver Ressler, "Emergency Turned Upside Down", 16 min., 2016
Every Saturday at 4 pm, the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the Museum of Warsaw invite guests to a guided tour in English through the "Neighbours" exhibition, organized as part of the 10th edition of the WARSAW UNDER CONSTRUCTION festival.
The festival’s exhibition can be read as a collection of diverse artistic approaches that take a timely look at social processes and how they’ve been shifted as the presence of new neighbors becomes increasingly apparent. The curators will draw to the foreground the artistic statements that refer to the situation in Ukraine as a result of the widespread discontent with the nation’s political situation, compounded by the ongoing military conflict, as well as the hurried ‘decommunization’ policy and the sweeping tide of ultra-nationalist movements.
The tour will be conducted by Petra Skarupsky.
art historian, PhD student at the Institute of Art History, University of Warsaw. Her research focuses on artistic contacts and exchange of exhibitions between Poland and Czechoslovakia during the Cold War.
