Re-opening of the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art with Power Play exhibition by Kornelia Dzikowska

Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art reopens. From 12 May 2020, you may visit Kornelia Dzikowskas Power Play installation prepared especially for the Project Room. The exhibition, which was open just for a week, is now extended until 31 May 2020.

The library and reading room reopen on 26 May 2020 with a limit of 3 people at one time. Before visiting us please contact us to book a place and a publication.

The cinema re-opens on 6 June 2020. However, it is working online, recommending the most interesting experimental films, and offering three-month free access to Mubi, an online platform showcasing independent cinema. Polish viewers have access to MOJEeKINO.pl, the largest online arthouse cinema presenting award-winning feature films, documents and experimental films.

From 19 June 2020, you may visit the group exhibition Crack Up Crack Down, curated by the Slavs and Tatars collective. The show takes a look at satire, both from a historic and a contemporary perspective, in graphics, activist interventions, memes, and via standupsfrom Eastern Europe to the Middle East. Satire can be moralistic but also critical; it has the power to destroy and to be revolutionary. In addition to the works of several dozen artists presented last year at the 33rd Biennial of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana, we will show new pieces. You will be able to experience works by the following artists: Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Hamja Ahsan, Pablo Bronstein, Cevdet Erek, Arthur Fournier with Raphael Koenig, Martine Gutierrez, Flaka Haliti, Stane Jagodič, Zhanna Kadyrova, Sachiko Kazama, Dozie Kanu, KRIWET, Ella Kruglanskaya, Tala Madani, Marlie Mul, Woody de Othello, Alenka Pirman with KULA, Amanda Ross-Ho, Lin May Saeed, Top lista nadrealista, Endre Tot, Anna Uddenberg, Martina Vacheva, Nicole Wermers, Giorgi Xaniashvili, XIYADIE, Honza Zamojski, Bolesław Chromry, Rafał Dominik, Łukasz Kozak, Maria Magdalena Kozłowska, Lubomir Grzelak, Jana Shostak with Jakub Jasiukiewicz, Mikołaj Sobczak, Jacqueline Sobiszewski, Justyna Stasiowska, Ewa Tatar and Andrzej Szpindler.

A week later, on 25 June 2020, we will open another exhibition from the Project Room series, by Jan Baszak, and later this year, we will show new works by Adelina Cimochowicz, Piotr Bruch, Sebastian Sebulc, and Marek Wodzisławski.

Due to the coronavirus epidemic, we have modified some of our exhibition plans. The exhibition Everyday Forms of Resistance, focusing on the strategies of living under pressure in Palestine, initially scheduled for April, has now been moved to next year. The solo exhibition of the Austrian artist Ursula Mayer, What Will Survive Of Us, will open in September 2020.

The performative exhibition of the collection Far Too Many Stories to Fit into so Small a Box has recently finished. However, we will exhibit works from our collection again by the end of this year. In November, we will open the Collection Co-selection exhibition, which will feature works selected by viewers in an online poll.

We encourage you to access our online resources: online performance and film archives. All issues of Obieg and The Residents magazines are available on our website. Workshops are taking place online. More information about our constantly evolving online offer can be found at www.u-jazdowski.pl.
