“Living in the Present Future” exhibition in Szczecin
Cooperation between Polish and Danish art museums
The National Museum in Szczecin and Bornholms Kunstmuseum have prepared a joint exhibition and publication project with participation of over a dozen artists from Poland and Denmark who in their artistic practice take up the theme of redefining humanity in an era of profound change and in the face of an uncertain future.
Living in the Present Future brings together artists who emphasize an ever-stronger fusion of body and consciousness with technology (Roman Lipski, Amalie Smith, Lea Guldditte Hestelund); those who are familiar with man’s close relationship with nature and non-human life (Artur Malewski, Ewa Juszkiewicz, Emil Westman Hertz), and those focusing on the ethical and existential dimensions of life in a rapidly changing world (Izabella Gustowska, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Peter Frimand, SUPERFLEX).
Using the appropriate for art tools, the primary goal of thi exhibition is to enhance recognition of the widespread reflection on these topics in the field of contemporary humanities.
The exhibition is accompanied by Polish-Danish-English publication prepared by the curators in co-operation with invited scientists: Izabela Kowalczyk (Uniwersytet im. Adama Mickiewicza, Poznań) and Jacob Wamberg (Aarhus University).
