Arton Review1st October sees the launch of Arton Review – a cycle of screenings by the Arton Foundation in collaboration with the National Museum in Warsaw.
The film programme is based on the resources of the Digital Archive of the Arton Foundation, which gathers Polish art of the 1970s.
The archive comprises photographs, documents and films by Jolanta Marcolla, Ryszard Waśko, Paweł Kwiek, Romuald Kutera, Andrzej Jórczak, Oskar and Zofia Hansen, among other artists.
The contents of the Repository of the Arton Foundation have served as the basis to create a series of (para)documentary films and short films inspired by the work of the classic artists of the Polish avant-garde. We have invited artists present on the contemporary Polish art scene to collaborate in making the films.
The artists invited to work on the films have been selected after analysing their working methods and the aspects of their practice that bring them closer to the works of the artists who used the medium of film several decades ago. Thus, we are building a space for original, intergenerational dialogues to be established, which is also one of the goals of the Arton Foundation.
