The publication in Polish and English, which accompanies the exhibition A Man’s World No More
is an in-depth study of the Krakow artist’s oeuvre.

The book consists of three parts. The first one comprises essays by invited authors. Karolina Sulej,
fashion anthropologist and writer, focuses on the language of clothing: the symbolic meaning of such
textiles as yarn, cloth or thread used by Małgorzata Markiewicz. Basia Śliwińska, art historian
and theorist, reveals the literary and philosophic origins of Medusa – the main heroine of the show
at Bunkier Sztuki. Anna Potocka, the Gallery director, writes about private threads in Markiewicz’s
art. Moreover, the catalogue includes texts by the artist herself as well as by Monika Kozioł,
the exhibition curator and editor of the book.

The second part comprises photographic documentation of the exhibition A Man’s World No More,
which was presented at the Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary Art from 18th February to 15th
May 2022. The last part includes the artist’s most important projects from the years 2001–2022.
