Od Muzeum Obsesji do Melancholii Sprzeciwu
[From the Museum of Obsession to the Melancholy of Opposition]
Lecture by
Dr. Justyna Balisz

In the spring of 1973, the legendary curator Harald Szeemann brings into being the phantasmatic Museum of Obsession. It is built solely in the imagination, on a shaky foundation of arbitrariness, subjectivity and private mythologies. The museum turns out to be an institution so melancholy as to be eminently political.

Laboratorium gestów – eksperymenty z percepcją w rzeźbie XX wieku [Laboratory of gestures – experiments with perception in twentieth-century sculpture]
Lecture by Małgorzata Jędrzejczyk

Sculpture is an artistic object which carries a special status. It shares with the viewer the space of everyday experience, while opening the boundaries of the aesthetic order to him. A lecture dealing with the work of artists such as Katarzyna Kobro, El Lissitzky, Constant Nieuwenhuys and Lygia Clark will be devoted to the idea of sculpture as a medium shaping the physical and intellectual activity of the recipient.
