Organizers of life : De Stijl, the Polish avant-garde and design by Muzeum Sztuki w Łodzi( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exactly one century ago, the autumn of 1917 witnessed two events of immense importance for the development of avant-garde thought in Poland and in the Netherlands. In October of the same year, the first issue of the journal De Stijl was published in the Dutch city of Leiden, which provided a platform that played an extremely significant role in the development of the so-called New Art. Only one month later, the First Exhibition of Polish Expressionists was inaugurated in Kraków, a city located more than one thousand kilometres away - the show is recognised today as a symbolic beginning of the Polish Avant-garde. At the time, the two events did not have much in common, yet this coincidence acquires a special meaning in the light of the mutual contacts and influences that emerged in the course of time between Polish and Dutch avant-garde groups and their representatives. (from an essay by Dr. Michał Wenderski) This book and catalogue is the first to present so extensively the connections between Polish avant-garde design and De Stijl's output. It presents extensive essays written by Prof. Marek Wieczorek, Dr. Michał Wenderski, and Dr. Szymon Piotr Kubiak focused on De Stijl%s influence on European design, mainly the Avant-garde and design in Poland. This part is supplemented with selected archival materials. The catalogue part of the publication mirrors the structure of the exhibition similarly entitled, showcasing the most important examples of artworks in Dutch and Polish circles
Superorganism : the avant-garde and the experience of nature( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subjects of this book are images of nature, the impact of science on art, and the attempt to understand man's role towards the environment. The title's metaphor of the superorganism is an allusion to the expansiveness of mankind, which has brought about civilisational progress, but also Earth's degradation. The attitudes that we encounter in avant-garde art comprise an intriguing mosaic of human fascinations, anxieties, reflections, and effects that we experience in relation to nature and which, due to their universality and the enduring character of the experience, remain invariably topical"--Back cover

The Great War( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is modernity, together with its contradictions, which culminated in World War I, intrinsically destructive??The Great War? exhibition does not offer a conclusive answer to this question. Yet, by showing WWI as a clash of diverse, often contradictory, forces, interests, and ideas? sometimes modernising, sometimes conservative? it is intended to create space, within which the question resonates and, above all, to provide a framework for reflection on the nature of modernity transformed by war.0The exhibition discusses relationships between modern art and the experience of war as shown from different perspectives. It also highlights differences in how the Great War was depicted in Western European art and in the art of countries of Central and Eastern Europe. To artists from Western Europe, war was a catastrophe, while in the countries of Central Europe, including Poland, it was predominantly seen through its outcomes, that is, in the light of regained independence or the revolutions it triggered. The exhibition invites the audience to reflect on these different approaches and their consequences for culture.00Exhibition: Muzeum Sztuki, Lódz, Poland (23.11.2018 - 17.03.2019)
