exhibition abroad



Uncensored is a unique exhibition providing an overview of independent Polish art of the 1980s. It presents the Polish equivalent of the post-1968 Czech unofficial art scene, which in Poland responded to the reality of Solidarity and the state of martial law proclaimed in 1981. Though deeply rooted in a historical context, this socially engaged art also has topical relevance to the present day. The Gallery of the Central Bohemian Region will be showing around 130 works (paintings, sculptures, installations, posters, photographs and films) by 60 artists who, out of protest against martial law, boycotted the cultural policies of the Communist functionaries of the Polish People’s Republic.

The exhibition is being staged in collaboration between the Gallery of the Central Bohemian Region, Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Polish Institute in Prague.
