REAL ART WAYS
POZA: On the Polishness of Polish Contemporary Art
Edited by Marek Bartelik.
POZA presents a selection of both well-established and emergent Polish artists, resident not only in Poland but also in the United States, Brazil, Canada and France. These artists are proposed not as mere instances of a nationality, but as individuals who explore issues of national identity by casting them in the broader context of contemporary art and life. These issues include questions of the ethnic versus the national, gender identity in post-Communist Poland and the nomadism of contemporary artists. The artists featured are Kinga Araya, Azorro Group, Frida Baranek, Anna Bialobroda, Karolina Bregula, Anna Bella Geiger, Wojciech Gilewicz, Aneta Grzeszykowska & Jan Smaga, Ewa Harabasz, Joanna Hoffmann, Jerzy Kubina, Zofia Kulik, Dominik Lejman, Joanna Malinowska, Jacek Malinowski, Gabriela Morawetz, Adam Niklewicz, Karol Radziszewski, Krystiana Robb-Narbutt, Christian Tomaszewski, Maciej Toporowicz, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Monika Weiss, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Pawel Wojtasik, Xawery Wolski and Krzysztof Zarebski.
