Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art reopens on 2 February 2021. We invite you to see our exhibitions and spend time in our cinema, library and reading room. However, for everyone who cannot visit us, we continue to give access to our exhibitions and films online.
Thanks to the collaboration with Mubi and Europa Cinemas, we are happy to invite you – as the first cinema in Warsaw – to take advantage of a free three-months access to a streaming service presenting a selection of award-winning films as well as independent and experimental cinema. There are about thirty titles available to subscribers at any given moment and the selection changes regularly. To take advantage of the three-month trial period for new users, please register at mubi.com/u-jazdowski.
Every year, many artists and curators from around the world take part in art residencies at the Ujazdowski Castle. The Residents magazine was created to showcase their work. Artists live and create here for many months and the culmination of their stay might be an exhibition, performance, or a publication. Sometimes the effects of their work are presented outside the Ujazdowski Castle, as in the case of the Lithuanian artist Lina Lapelyte, whose opera was awarded the Golden Lion at the last Venice Art Biennale. In the magazine, you will also find interviews with Polish artists who took part in art residencies in Palestine: Karolina Grzywnowicz, Joanna Rajkowska, and Jaśmina Wójcik. Their work will be presented at the exhibition Everyday Forms of Resistance, which we plan to open in 2021.
Obieg is a bilingual online magazine dedicated to culture and art, documenting global contemporary art. It combines critique, in-depth theoretical texts, non-academic investigations, essays, and images. Fifteen issues have been published since 2016.
Our website contains photographic documentation, video, and guides available to download in pdf, from previous exhibitions, performances, and presentations by young artists in the Project Room series. The U–jazdowski Vimeo channel features video documentation of exhibitions, events, and a showcase of work by artists taking part in our residence programme.
A virtual tour of Ludwika Ogorzelec I’m Looking for a Moment of Equilibrium exhibition introduces work of a Polish artist who has lived in Paris since the 1980s. In a guided tour of Sebastian Sebulec Fur exhibition the artist presents work he has created especially for the show in the Project Room. The film about Ursula Mayer's exhibition What Will Survive of Us is a science-fiction mini-novel, which introduces us to the world of the exhibition with the voice of Valentijn de Hingh. 3D exhibition models are also available.
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.
Stay at home with us, and soon we will meet again at the Ujazdowski Castle.
