Lessons from the Collection

Limited access to our exhibition space doesn't mean that we have given up on presenting the most interesting works of contemporary art. As part of the Lessons from the Collection series, we present selected works from our collection, which anyone can view without leaving home. We explore the meaning of the work of Polish artists and prove that artworks created a few or several dozen years ago are still valid and take up important existential, social, political, and artistic issues.

We invited art historians, critics and experts in modern art to collaborate. Through the prism of their knowledge, they will talk about artworks by artists including: Grzegorz Klaman, Oleg Kulik, Zbigniew Libera, Jarosław Modzelewski, Teresa Murak, and Zbigniew Warpechowski.Each week we will share a video about one particular artwork, explaining the story behind of its creation and the contexts in which it operates.
