Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw invites you to the opening of the “Never Again. Art against War and Fascism in the 20th and 21st Centuries” exhibition.
The exhibition “Never Again. Art against War and Fascism in the 20th and 21st Centuries”, organised on the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II relies on three precisely determined focal points – Guernica and the 1930s, the “Arsenal” exhibition and the 1950s, contemporary art and (post-)fascism – to present the singular and distinctive tradition of anti-fascist art.
The exhibition presents works by such artists as – in the 1930s: Maja Berezowska, Alice Neel, Dora Maar, George Grosz, John Heartfield, Jonasz Stern, Leopold Lewicki, Sasza Blonder, Adam Marczyński, Bolesław Stawiński, Bronisław Wojciech Linke, Stanisław Osostowicz; – in the 1950s: Izaak Celnikier, Alina Szapocznikow, Jerzy Tchórzewski, Erna Rosenstein, Marek Oberländer, Jan Dziędziora, Jerzy Tchórzewski, Tadeusz Trepkowski, Waldemar Cwenarski, Wojciech Fangor, Andrzej Wróblewski, Xavier Guerrero; – today: Alice Creischer, Nikita Kadan, Forensic Architecture, Jonathan Horowitz, Goshka Macuga, Mario Lombardo, Mykola Ridnyi, Hito Steyerl, Marta Rosler, Raymond Pettibon, Wilhelm Sasnal, The Society of Friends of Maxwell Itoya and Wolfgang Tillmans.
After the opening, at 9 PM, we invite the public to the concert of the FLAUTA collective.
is a collective based in Warsaw and a cycle of electronic music parties focused on finding new qualities in connections of electronic music genres, supported by a strong and analog-only visual aspect. With a spirit of a grassroot activism, FLAUTA collects money for NGO's and social institustions which organise help for immigrants in Europe.
