This exhibition will introduce the contemporary art of Poland, a capital of Eastern European Culture, focusing on the position of female artists and moving images. The history of Polish art and cinema in the previous century has been spoken by the names of great men. However, in the 21st century Poland, which took part in the wave of the global economy which has flown to the east at once after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and entering the EU accession, many expressions based by female artists have a significant presence. At the same time, there is a trend to revalidate the pioneering example of female artists in the last century, which has not been fully discussed until now. This exhibition is an ambitious attempt to understand the history of contemporary art in Poland from a new perspective through collaborative exchanges with researchers, curators and related organizations both in and out of Poland.
