30.03 - 06.05.2012: New Europe. Atlas - Łukasz Trzciński
Curator: Stanisław Ruksza
"New Europe. Atlas" by Łukasz Trzciński presents a project, undertaken by the artist in 1999, focusing on the transformations taking place in 'new' post-communist countries of Europe following the collapse of the 'Iron Curtain' system. The artist's project, which is still continued, entails twenty-one series based on photography.
"New Europe" depicts contemporary, local issues in the countries striving to diversify from each other from the perspective of current political, economic and cultural transformations. It also reveals burdensome legacy of the previous political system and historical entrapment.
